The Coveted 3 Sport Day

3 sport

My husband has always talked about the ‘3 sport day’. You know it has been a good day when you have done 3 sports.

Paper Shower Review: Cooling down and Cleaning up at the office.

I received a product from a company called StrideBox.  They are a monthly subscription box that sends you samples of nutrition, creams, massage tools, safety gear, and all sorts of things.  It is essentially a surprise grab-bag that you receive every month.

5 Reasons to Volunteer for a Fitness Event

Any event takes a lot of people working together to pull off and almost all of them could use more volunteers whether it is a PTA fundraiser or Ironman. We love volunteering for many events and have never regretted a single one. Well, except for the one that didn’t tell me where to go or who to talk to and I didn’t end up getting to help at all. That.. Read More

Fueling for Endurance and Avoid Getting Sick

I am getting over a cold. It is the second one in a month and I am generally healthy and can avoid such things. But not when I start running. You could even make a joke when you sign up for a race.
