    Trail run - questions

    trail running Hi, I love trail running and that's all I do. I used to be a road runner, but for me it is so boring in comparison to trail running. Everything everyone else said is so true. The only thing I have to add is that I'd try to find somewhere to practice just a little to get a feel...

    should my puppy stay or go?

    I'd get rid of the dog and you should not feel bad about anything. Dogs like that take a certain type of situation to be kept and if it's not fitting in with your family and lifestyle why would you keep it? Dogs are supposed to be a positive addition to family life. CM has a whole yard full...

    Insanity I was an Insanity sceptic, but finally broke down and got it a couple of months ago. I didn't realize what I was missing! I'm starting the second month of Insanity and I've also gotten great results. I did the first month as suggested and did one additional upper body and one...

    addicted to salads

    salads Hi, I probably eat a big salad 6 out of 7 nights a week. I usually add some lean protein and I'm good to go. I've even gotten DH into the habit and he loves them now. My favorite combination is avocado, raisins, red onion, gorganzola (or any kind really), and chopped egg on a bed of...

    Any Oxygen subscribers out there?

    magazines Hi, Let's see, I gave up M&H because I just couldn't see how Samantha Harris was a model for fitness. I let my Oxygen subscription run out because I got sick of the ads, then renewed for a year just for mindless reading. If I believed everything that they say in On Fitness I'd have...

    Just Completed Cardio Core Circuit!

    Cardio Core Hi, I was surprised last night when my dvds arrived by USPS. I promptly did Cardio Core today and I wasn't disappointed. It is very high impact, but could be modified to most fitness levels and the intensity could be increased if you choose not to take the short breaks. The core...

    Kathryn question

    Hi, I was just reading the thread related to the knee issues and you mentioned MSM. I purchased a joint supplement for my dog and it has MSM. It did seem to help, but then I got worried about using it because I can't seem to find much research about the long term use of it. We used DMSO on...

    Oh, The Weather Outside Is Frightful

    snow Hi, I'm in Northern VA and we have about 22" on our deck, not to mention the drifts. At least the sun is out today. What a mess though. I wish I had periodically gone out and dug my car out. I'm so jealous of the person who was out hiking. No trail running for me for a while either. Tracy

    Cathe, will I ever make it through STS?

    herniated discs Hi, I herniated 2 discs in my lower back 2 years ago. Although it was very painful and took some time to recover, I'm almost 100% now. I didn't have surgery, nor the steroid epidurals. Each case is different and it does get better, but I think in almost all cases it takes a...

    cost Hi, I'm going to pay 220 plus tip for highlights and a cut next week. The last time I went to a cheaper salon and although it looked OK, it wasn't that great. There was lots of gray still visible, plus someone at work goes there too and I swear our hair looked very similar in color. I...
