    Our snow is essentially gone, but 6-12" in the forecast for the next 36 hours. I hope the rugrat gets a snow day. He is desperate to get back out on his skis!

    Between Fri. and Sun. my kid and I skied 8 miles. What hurt worst on me was my groin/inner thigh muscles. DH skied with us on Fri and that's where he felt it, too. Granted, everything has become...

    He's only recently started eating burgers -- that IS funny! When he was maybe 3 he wanted steak for his birthday. He was nomming away on his med-rare piece and moaning "mmm...bloody."

    Mine is picky, but it's mostly a texture thing -- yay, autism!! He was less picky as a toddler, though the things he really liked when little he still likes. He'd eat broccoli every day. Still...

    Ahhh...this is what I love about you ladies -- I believe I would feel totally at home in a community full of the likes of this group.

    Unfortunately I live in the uppity WASP Bible belt of West MI....

    About the only thing lower impact would be swimming. Around here XC skiing is really popular amongst cyclists who don't ride outdoors in the Winter.

    STILL waiting for some legitimate snow so that my DS and I can use our BRAND NEW XC skis that we've been sitting on since a week before Thanksgiving. So frustrating living in the snow belt and...

    MIPS helmets can help with the rotational impacts inside the skull, too. When I crashed this Fall (on loose, rutted gravel going down a hill and trying to avoid my kid in front of me and an oncoming...

    I wonder if it's possible that the shoe, itself, is contributing to your discomfort. The Kayano is a pretty controlling shoe. Where are you feeling pain? If I wear "too much shoe" for running I...

    Big Sexy Hair. I have baby-fine, straight hair. It makes my hair tons less flat.

    Nothing here...and nothing below 40s for the coming 15 day forecast. Figures. The past 2 years we were pounded with snow, which inspired the purchase in the first place. I'll be super bummed if my...

    We don't usually get much snow before Dec., but our long range forecast is a good 10 too warm for snow well into Dec...which is not normal. Our average seasonal snowfall is 96". I doubt very much...

    If only we'd get some snow. Most years I dread snow...2 years ago we had record snow, last year we had a ton of snow and record cold. This year...we've had maybe 3" total...nothing that stuck long...

    We got these, today! I actually went with upgraded boots and poles. The upgrade boots fit my goofy wide/duck foot much better. And the upgraded poles were a lot lighter for only $7 more. My...

    I finally got around to checking out a new (opened a few months ago) outlet mall <1 hour away, a few days ago. The experience was exhausting and I ended up spending WAY more than I had planned. ...

    I get small bumps like this right in my pantyline area. And they seem unrelated to the # of miles I'm logging or bottoms I wear. Mine seem to be glorified zits. And what works best for the ones I...

    Yeah, definitely don't want true backcountry skis...I don't envision us doing big-time deep powder and breaking trails. More like 6" of fresh stuff and trails that have maybe had only a couple of...
  20. Looking to purchase XC skis...30 years after my first set

    So a couple of years ago my DS (12ish, at the time) was running with me. Eventually we picked-up running snowshoes so that we could continue running in the Winter, but not have to play chicken with...

    OMG...and maybe they need to put bicycle racks on ambulances. Seriously, it doesn't seem like a bad idea. My MIL suffered a concussion a year or two ago when she tipped-over at a stop. Fortunately...

    Oh, yeah, West MI snow conditions are all over the map. I suspect I'd still be happy with no wax.
