My only real issue with the whole thing is the cost. Coaches are volunteers. It's a non-profit organization, which is great, but it's $150 per girl for a 10-12 week season. For schools with a free and reduced lunch count between 30-60%, it's $75 a girl. For schools with a free and reduced lunch count above 60%, it's $10 a girl. The cost pays for shirts, race registrations, materials, etc. If your school can get a sponsor, the cost goes way down. Almost everything else is sponsored by businesses, national and local, though. It's just one of those things...one of those things where you'll only get a certain subset of the population joining the teams, so the girls who need the coaching and guidance in life (and in running) won't always be able to join. While several of the girls I worked with were super sweet and gained a lot from the program, they didn't necessarily need the coaches to be positive role models in their lives because they had moms and dads who were willing to pay $75 for Girls on the Run in the first place. Make sense? I still believe in the program and will probably coach again in the future.
+I saw this on Facebook and had to click. 50 Reasons Why You the Military Wife Deserve a Standing Ovation. #20, #21, #39, #40 especially, and then #50. However, a lot of them are cliched and the same old, same old. And I think "wife" should be changed to "spouse" in the title because there's just as many husbands out there sacrificing. But really, #40: The only way through is through. I've gotten to be really good at this.
+It did lead me to another post: 6 Things to Say that Won't Encourage Military Wives. All of those are VERY true and I really get #1: The only time I'll ask for help is when I'm desperate. Otherwise, I (like many others) just hunker down and deal with the inconveniences.
+Concerning Rodan and Fields...it would make a great Christmas gift! For you, a family member, a friend...I will say that I'm sending a few products as gifts this year (and I did buy them myself) just because they are life-changing and I'd love to give someone the opportunity to try them out.
If you're not into a full regimen, there's several mini-regimens you can put together. Mixing and matching is always an option!
And each of these sets would last more than 60 days. The microdermabrasion paste, honestly, lasted me an entire YEAR, using it 2-4 times a week.
Also, this one. When you break it down by product/day, it's not any more than you'd be spending in on drugstore or department store products. This is Redefine, for wrinkles/lines/smoothing:
Any stuff or things to share?
