Dietary fiber helps control constipation conditions, decrease bad or “LDL” cholesterol levels by […]

Of all the adversities that runners and marathoners face, heat is the number one offender. This is because it can bring on two conditions that can negatively affect your performance… Overheating and Dehydration. Overheating is the result of inadequate cooling; when the body cannot keep up with the demands of evaporation of water from your […]

I had an awesome “adventure” this morning.  We rode our bikes out by the airport, made a loop and stopped off at the gym and went for a swim.  Best morning, and fell great.  I have so much energy and ready to do more! Ha!

We had a great 90 minute run this morning.  Ended up doing 8.5 miles.  Weather was warm, as expected, but beside that, the run was great.  Even better are the pop-cycles you get after your run.  I hope you got out today and enjoyed the sunrise this morning.  It was awesome!
