Stayin’ with Healthy Ashley, her hubby, and her four crazy ginormous dogs tonight.

    I went to Asheville a few weeks ago when me and my mom were visiting my dad who had a job in Charlotte. Once we were in charlotte for a couple days we went there and then rode the blueridge and went to charlottesville. Go to Tupelo Honey Cafe! We waited about 1 hour and 15 minutes and it was so WORTH it. Just make reservations 😉 Good luck on your tri!

As a Kappa Delta, I was so proud when we started the Confidence Coalition and since I heard about Operation Beautiful 2 weeks ago from your blog, I’ve already started leaving post-its everywhere!

    I used to live in the Spartanburg/Greenville area. We would go to Asheville almost every week end. It was so dog friendly. We thought the dog part was awesome. We never had a problem there. Every one was super understanding about dog behavior.

    • CaitlinHTP August 7, 2011, 10:58 am

      i know! i loved how you could take poochies into the shops.

  • Lee August 6, 2011, 11:10 am

    I love Asheville. You have to try the Buchi Kombucha while you are there. (If you like Kombucha)

    • CaitlinHTP August 7, 2011, 10:57 am

      I tried the Kombucha on tap at Rosetta’s, it sounds great.

  • Selena August 6, 2011, 11:51 am

    Love Asheville…that’s only about 30 min from where my mom lives and where I went to middle school/high school. Beautiful area!

    Best of luck to you. I ran my 1st 5K this morning in 32 min, 1.08 seconds. Am I allowed to round that to 32 min even ;)?

    • Selena August 6, 2011, 12:35 pm

      Wait a minute…your tri is in Canton?? I lived in Waynesville, next town over. How funny!

    • CaitlinHTP August 7, 2011, 10:55 am

      Hahah yeah, I would round it down! 🙂 And yes, we were in Canton – fun little town!

  • Anne August 6, 2011, 12:54 pm
