Just hold on and you’ll make it.

NBCs's Running Wild with Bear Grylls pictured with Zac Efron Have you watched the new program on NBC called Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls? It is about people overcoming crazy circumstances in the wild with nothing but a few tools they carry on their backs and their common sense. Our family has found it to be very entertaining. I'm not so sure we'd think of it as entertaining if we were the ones facing the extreme circumstances; however, we all do from time to time. Oh, I know we're not necessarily dropped out of a helicopter in [...]

What are you holding onto?

What are you afraid of? Anything? I recently finished reading the Divergent trilogy and also saw the movie.  If you haven't read the books or seen the movie, the city is divided into five groups or factions. At age 16, people are allowed to choose their faction. The main character, Tris, chose Dauntless, which means: not to be intimidated, fearless, intrepid, bold, daring, brave, courageous."

Take cover! It’s rough out there.

The Wet Rat Look (I'm starting a new trend.) Are you a runner? I think I've made it perfectly clear that I am NOT a runner; however, this summer I've been running to train for a 5K with my son who has been studying abroad all summer.  It has been a way to stay connected to him.

How will you respond?

Boston Marathon Do you have any runners in your family? If so, the Boston Marathon bombing probably hit a little close to home for you.  My younger brother, Steve, is an Ironman.  I've followed him in a race, cheering him on as he went.  I've been by his side, encouraging him along those last few steps, screaming for joy for him as he crossed the finish line.  My father has also run a marathon, where I've been there calling his name, cheering him on to the last step.  Never did I think either would be in danger of [...]
