Let’s Be Honest …

Today’s rant brought to you by the letter N. For NUTRITION. Let me start off by saying that I’m no dummy, the second people hear you need to eat right, they think DIET and stop listening. Well I’ll be the first to tell you, STOP DIETING. No longer are you dieting. No longer are you […]

Runners Corner: I Confess, I Obsess Over My Pace

I confess, I obsess over my pace. Iai??i??m not going fast enough. Iai??i??m going too fast. How will I ever PR in my next half?

Abs, Abs, Abs! (With Video)

By Kristin Walton, Before I go start my rant, there is one thing you must remember: abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym. This means that when Ms. Britney Spears said all she does for her abs are crunches, she was lying! Yes, it is very important to work your core, but […]

New Year, New You!

By Kristin Walton, It’s a popular time for resolutions and working out, some things will stick and some will fade away.

Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland

By Kristin Walton, Walking in a winter wonderland. Or should I run? Run from this “wonderland” filled with candy, brownies, and pie. Oh Santa, why in the world must you tempt me with reese’s filled cookies and my mom’s famous pumpkin bread. What did I ever do to you? Did I come up there […]
