Hi GoGirl. Thank you for commenting on my blog post. I've been on Spark for about a week and am still finding my way around. Reading your Spark Page and blog entries reminds me a lot of myself, especially in my college years. Congratulations on feeling better and more positive about yourself. Good luck with qualifying for Boston! It's a goal of mine too.

Thanks for the page comment. I think most of my recipes are hidden to myself as I primarily use it to keep tracking easier as I like to cook but I'm glad you found some of them!

OH that winter should not be as long for you! How have you been doing with retirement from your sport? Are you doing ok?

"Defeat may test you; it need not stop you. If at first you don't succeed, try another way.
For every obstacle there is a solution. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
The greatest mistake is giving up."

"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
-- Ralph Marston
