Hi! I'm a married 41 y/o SAHM with 3 girls ages 23, 21, and 17, and 2 boys, ages 3.5 and 22mths.

We live close to downtown Dallas, and my hobbies are sewing, painting, reading, and films (just finished the Asian Film Festival here...awesome!!).
I have recently taken up running (9wks ago) and have completed two 5K races, including one where I won 3rd place in my division!!!

I've been lurking forever and posting some, but wanted to introduce myself. I love this board!

Jacki, old-fashioned, crunchy mama to five, grandmother to one.

Welcome, welcome, welcome. I just returned from a week-long visit to Dallas. I grew up there and sometimes miss the atmosphere.

Enjoy the forums!

I Texas! 3rd in your 5k, that is really impressive!
