Variety in your run workouts will make a difference

I am scheduling this post to publish while I am at the Dolphins game tonight… hopefully we will be winning or have won by the time you read this.  That will be a good ending to the day versus how it started off.  I have to admit that my post the other day on cramping […]

Figuring out the twitch and the itch

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!

The start of 2009 was big for me as I came to the realization that I had put on too much weight over the past 10 years (read more...)
