I am a typical American woman living a typical over-worked life. I've been married for 22 years and have 2 children ages 21 & 18, 1 dog, 1 cat, 1 bird, 1 mortgage, 1 day job, and many Singing Gigs. With my busy life, I often have a hard time taking care of myself. I have enjoyed using SPARK as a reminder and a motivator to reach my goals! Currently I am working on strengthening from an injury and tackling my weight gain.

    Welcome to Mormon Winners! Glad you came along for the ride. Great job on your 5K results. My wife had similar results on her first 5K on 4 July. She came in 3rd in her age category. I ran my first marathon last year (Utah Valley) and just completed my 4th a few weeks ago.

    I also like to sing and probably the biggest advantage to being fit is that I can sustain notes for a lot longer. That is a fun benefit that I was not seeking at first.

    Good Luck and be blessed.

    Hi, I noticed that you are a member of the Northern Utah Sparkies. I just took over as co-leader of that team. I would appreciate it if you would come to the team page and post your ideas on how what you would like to see, and how we can make the team more useful for its members.
