    I have been away from the forums for awhile and am slightly overwhelmed. I just saw something about a spin dvd from Cathe - is this true and what else is she working on. If someone could point me to the link announcing the new workouts that are happening it would be greatly appreciated...

    Nook vs Kindle

    Yes, the 3g is definately worth the extra $50 - it is a one time charge - and if you don't have access to wifi - like if you are on vacation and need another book to read - you have the 3g so you can download without connecting to a computer which you might not have access to either. I have the...

    New Runner - Need some tips

    couch 25k is a great program - do it at your pace sometimes I would repeat a week if I didn't feel I was ready for the next step. Most important is running shoes - go to a local running store - hopefully one near you - they will look at your foot and fit you with the right type of shoe. Also...

    young girls and a cleanser

    Neutrogena makes a device called the wave - you need to buy pads that have a cleanser in it - each pad is one time use. I can get a little more expensive than a regular soap - but my dd loved using it so she actually did wash her face. She has also used clean and clear morning burst and loves...

    Question for Runners . . . . Leg cramps

    sounds like dehydration to me. I agree with the banannas - they can never hurt and gatorade - if you can't stomach it - me either - just make sure your are properly hydrated with water - especially a few days before your 10k - good luck with that!!!! I did a 30 mile bike ride a few weeks...

    Opinions - Jillian Michaels Ultimate Crossbar

    Thanks - that's what I was thinking. I might wind up getting it anyway - right now I am in the 15 lb range on a bar bell so I think it will last awhile. I looked into the troy lite which I like but shipping is around $35 putting the 40 lb set at around $100. I also have a younger daughter...

    Seriously $400 Lego set for an 8 year old?

    LEGOS today are not the legos of yesterday. LEGOS are big in education - they teach fine motor skills, math skills etc - do a search on lego leagues and competitions. Winning one of these is very prestigious and believe it or not looks good on college applications - schools have clubs that...

    Ankle injury need strengthening exercises

    What Cathe said - was exactly what they had me doing in physical therapy when I injured my ankle. They gave me a band to do those exercises at home as well. For me the ankle injury took the longest to heal - after a year, I still don't feel that I have the same strength or mobility as in my...
