    Ohhhh, how I miss Cathe.....

    Way to Go!! Awesome and good for you! For me the races are all about pushing myself out of my comfort zone and seeing if I can do it. There is a natural progression through the course of the race: Start out feeling nervous but excited, get into the groove and think "I can do this", hit the...

    Ohhhh, how I miss Cathe.....

    How did your race go? I have been running for the past year or so and did my first half in May. Word of caution...races are addictive. I am not super fast but more people finish after me then before me. I am now getting ready to do my 5th half in as many months next weekend. But I am also...

    Help with sports bras

    Jeanne...I have done that same thing before. Sadly it doesn't always work. I am built with 'not much in the front seat' but a whole lot of junk in the trunk. There is nothing worse than feeling that panic and worry that I am going to have to call my husband in to cut the thing off of me! ha...

    What is your last workout for 2012?

    Woke up to a beautiful but slightly chilly morning so I went for a 5 mile run. When I got home my husband wanted to go out in our kayak so we paddled around the bay for 3 miles. The water was so calm but my hands were a bit chilly. Great way to end the year.

    Wrapping paper- how long can you leave it?

    I tried to bag it as we unwrapped but my 15 year old son told me I had to stop. He insists on ending up with paper all over the floor. He says its how things are supposed to be on Christmas morning. He then does his salute to Randy on "A Christmas Story" and acts like he is asleep in the mess...

    DFW Catheites. Please. I need your HELP!!

    If you are going with Arlington, north is typically better than south. If you choose Fort Worth, the area near the zoo is very nice but I am not sure if it's in your price range. Around TCU, the university, you can find some nice places as well. My sister lived in Irving for a long time but it's...

    DFW Catheites. Please. I need your HELP!!

    You also should try and figure out exactly which area of DFW you are wanting to live in. The DFW area is quite a lot of territory. I laugh when I watch House Hunters and they find a home that is only 10 or 15 miles from their target area since I know that might not be a long distance but the...
