I have gained 3.5 pounds since I weighed 11 days ago. I've gained even more than that since my last Spark weigh-in at the beginning of December. I am not proud. I am a little disappointed, but I have to admit I was aware of what I was doing t... Read more

When I first started training to run, our group was asked to discuss our whys. Why do we run/walk? I heard several good reasons that day, but one that has stuck with me ever since is to run for those who can't. Today, I took a big leap of fai... Read more
