Today’s healthy spark:
I just signed up for my very first half-marathon coming in August. I am trying not to get intimated by the whole training process and actual race.
Today’s inspirational spark:

There are a variety of ways to learn something new. Reading, discussions, and workshops are just a few examples. Given our technological advances, more and more people are turning to / experimenting with online videos as another method for teaching and learning. The Khan Academy is a one-man university of sorts online. There is now a whole non-profit team behind the project, and the number of videos and teaching endeavors is expanding.
Some of his tutorials may be useful to you. The main website is at http://www.khanacademy.org/ . The homepage says”With a library of over 2,400 videos covering everything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history and 125 practice exercises, we’re on a mission to help you learn whatever you want, whenever you want, at your own pace.” What’s great, too, is that the whole video selection is free to viewers.
CNN posted a piece about the Khan Academy today as well:
