Well folks, I'm off to a slow start as a leader. Hope no one's too disappointed yet - aside from me. The past couple of weeks have been both satisfying (selling my home, moving to the new home) & frustrating (my leg and shoulder injuries). Well, I tend to lead by example - walk the walk & then tell about it by talking the talk.

So.. a first today - since joining this team, I am not expecting to do any QFing, SSing (slowsmoldering), FLing (fastlimping) or QCing (quickcrutching). My thigh is rock hard - and not in a good way. (lol - admittedly my legs are the most toned part of my body & usually are rock hard. But I have rocks in there I don't recognize today).

Anyway, I type this message on my phone & hope to do my Sparking while laying in bed with my leg iced and ACEd, and my shoulder slinged. But if you don't see much of me today as a leader, you now know why.

Have a great weekend!!

Wow... talk about feeling the pressure!! :-) I hope to live up to everyone's expectations, but again, I tend to be a laid-back, hands-off kind of leader. But I will aim to please :-)

Thank you for all the "thank you"s and "welcome"s. I'm a bit humbled and even a bit more, um, embarassed isn't the word, but I am blushing :-)

Anyway, I owe a great deal to this teams leaders who preceded me, Mic, Wendy and Kelli for getting me on board to this team many months ago and turning me into an avid, if not rabid, QuickFirer.

As Wendy pointed out in her intro, I'm not always, exactly, "QuickFiring". I do what I can do within my limits at any given time. And lately, as those of you who may be following my antics / foibles via my blogs and status updates would know, I've had my share of roadblocks (e.g. injuries and surgeries) that have caused me to slowsmolder or fastlimp (or whatever other new name I'll coin along the way).

Bottom line, as someone noted in this thread, is that we're all here to help ourselves and each other. I know when I went in for open-heart surgery back in August, it was Kelli, Wendy, and Mic who answered my request to serve as a liason of my status (since I was posting to Facebook). I owe a lot to each of them - they've gone above and beyond being SparkFriends; I am happy to be able to call them true friends.

So, I'm returning the favor(s) that friends do for each other and have accepted the role of co-leader. I'll warn all of you - I tend not to be the warm-and-fuzzy "rah-rah" type. But I am the person who you can always come to with a problem or question or just want to vent. So always feel free to start a new topic here, or drop me (or Wendy or Mic) a SparkMail with any concerns or questions. I may not always have the answers (ummmm, okay, I'll always have an answer, it just may not be the correct one :-), but I will listen, and I will answer.

This is a great team. It's given so much life (and, dare I say, "Spark") to my fitness program. I'm looking forward to giving back.

And awayyyy we gooooo!!!!

Alan

Hi Team!

Just wanted to take the time to introduce you to a new addition to the co lead position at QFC.....Alan (ALANOFLINY).

He may be new to the position here at QFC, but he isn't new to leadership roles on other teams or new to SP by any means. He is great motivation and inspiration to many! He has even given "QuickFiring" a new name at times..."SlowSmoldering", "QuickCrutching", and even "FastLimping"....depending on what injury he is dealing with at the time....he still manages to get in the QuickFire! I like to refer to him as "The QFC PosterBoy"!!!

Feel free to welcome him here on the thread or drop by his page and grab some of that motivation that just jumps from his page.

Welcome Alan! We are so glad to have you on board with us!
