Good day friends and it's really funny to say it's a long time.
Well, today is a landmark for me and I know it will keep going. I ran a 10k race today and I am so proud to tell it to the world. It was not really about the timing and position but more of the fact that I started the race and finished in good form.
Back to when I first joined sparkpeople, when I had friends who were really close even when we were continents apart.
I joined challenges that really challenged me.
I had spark buddies who motivated me to be fit.
I met people that I really bonded with.
I was healthy and I felt it too.
I was passionate about living healthy and staying fit.
Lastly, when I saw pictures of races, I dreamed of me also doing a public race someday (I had done a few virtual)
But 8 years along, life had happened and trust me it had not been easy only worth it.
Right now I wish to be back. Back to my consistent blogs, exercise, challenges and the passion to be healthy now that I am above 40. (Not the same body any longer). I hope someone out there will be that old friend that sparked me and kept sparking me.
Anyways the race was fun and it reminded me of sparkpeople as I was making my way through the routes this morning. Sparkpeople had helped me in a lot of ways and I dedicate this race to them. I wouldn't have gotten it better elsewhere.
Thank you sparkfriends, I owe you one.
