And to think that when I started on SparkPeople 8 years ago, I had never even run 1 mile. That's what Spark teammates do for us - they lift us up and encourage us to step out of our box and try something new. I will always be grateful for SparkPeople and the wonderful people here!(3 comments)See this image largerThat's what we do here at SparkPeople - light a fire!(1 comments)See this image largerI had a little biking accident yesterday. I lost control of my bike on lose gravel in a construction zone & went over the handlebars. I'm pretty banged up - road rash on my knee & shoulder, & twisted my ankle. Fortunately I was wearing my helmet & gloves, so that saved my head, face, & hands. I'll be laying low with my leg elevated for a few days.(2 comments)See this image largerIt's so much fun to be a lifelong Cubs fan!

Without gratitude, a sense of entitlement takes over and begins to rot our soul. Without gratitude, we get old and grumpy, or even young and grumpy. Gratitude keeps us young. It anchors us to the present moment. It reminds us of what matters most and what matters least, and fills us with the resolve to carry on the great mission God has entrusted to us." - Matthew Kelly(1 comments)See this image largerThat’s really cool!(1 comments)See this image largerHow is your attitude?See this image largerIt’s the first race day of the season - 5K today.(1 comments)See this image largerSunday was my first 5K of the season.

Man in his ignorance has always assumed that the earth would rejuvenate herself no matter what he did. But the earth can lose her resiliency. Her waters are polluted. Her soil is becoming dust; some of her trees are poisoned. Someday she may be beyond her ability to heal herself.

Did you know, the average American uses seven trees a year in paper, wood, and other products made from trees?! This amounts to about 2,000,000,000 trees per year! Go paperless with bills, take notes on your phone or computer, send e cards, read news online. When it is absolutely necessary to print, do it on both sides of the page. And don’t forget to recycle your paper when you’re done with it!See this image larger“The environment is where we all meet; where all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing all of us share.” —Lady Bird Johnson #EarthDaySee this image larger“The environment is where we all meet; where all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing all of us share.” —Lady Bird Johnson #EarthDaySee this image largerDay 2 #EarthWeekChallenge is to fit all your waste today into a mason jar. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the EPA, 4.40 pounds is the rough average of daily waste that someone creates.

The challenge is to reduce your shower time. Shortening your shower time by just two minutes can save more than ten gallons of water. If everyone saved just one gallon, it would be two times more water saved than is currently drawn daily from the Great Lakes! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have an amazing Earth Day everyone and get outside today if you can!See this image largerMan in his ignorance has always assumed that the earth would rejuvenate herself no matter what he did. But the earth can lose her resiliency. Her waters are polluted. Her soil is becoming dust; some of her trees are poisoned. Someday she may be beyond her ability to heal herself. But what we do to her, we do to ourselves. #EarthDay #gogreenSee this image largerHappy 50th anniversary of #earthday!See this image largerToday's #EarthDayChallenge is hopefully an easy one: go vegetarian for the day! It takes 2,500 gallons of water to produce a single pound of beef. And each hamburger that comes from animals on ex-forestry ground is responsible for the destruction of fifty-five square feet of forest. Going forward, you don't have to give up meat altogether, but it would be great to try to commit to one meat free day a week, like "meatless Monday".
