At a pretty big tournament two weeks ago women from the Chicago Koala Bears/North Shore team palled around, had a good time, and tried to sell some calendars for a fundraiser.
A blogger in the U.K. is trying to dispel the idea that fat women can't run, offering herself up as an example of someone who runs marathons even while technically overweight.
Kacy Catanzaro is five foot nothin', one hundred nothin', and just became the first woman to compete a physical obstacle course so challenging that it hobbles many athletic male gym rats who attempt it.
I have super thick curly medium/long hair and bangs. I've started amping up a lot more cardio classes and wanted to know if anyone has any ideas on how to control my crazy hair.
And maybe the 4th time in the last 4 weeks... Gulp. How do y'all get past exercise slumps? Inertia sucks when you're an object at rest!
In one of the best times of year for those of us who are occasionally not above perving on Athletes(or appreciate the appearance of a diverse range of athletic body types in their naked glory, whichever works) ESPN's body issue brings us yet another terrific gallery of the sporting types in the buff. It's a…
I am a huge fan of Zombies, Run!, an exercising app/game by Six to Start. Love immersive storytelling? Don't want your brains get eaten by zombies? Well, this game might be for you..
I foolishly overworked myself during my
run (okay, slowly shambling jog) yesterday and happily remembered this post so I slathered my calves with tiger balm when they were starting to hurt. HOWEVER, I also strained a muscle in my lower back - it just suddenly started to hurt on my way back home.
Exercise is tough, and we all have various ways of distracting ourselves from the agony of it all. The Oatmeal's trick for getting through marathons is to invent bizarre ways of measuring distance.
Healthy eating advocates often tell people to "eat the rainbow." It's a simple way of reminding you that a variety of fruits and vegetables in your diet will get you the vitamins and minerals you need. It also calls out the fact that you can learn a lot about your food just by looking at it. Here's what it means, and…
My personal trainer once asked me if I'd ever had so much alcohol to drink that I felt like throwing up or passing out. Obviously, I said yes. Then he asked me the same about working out. I've been going to him ever since.
I am currently taking care of my little sister for the summer and haven't worked out in a few weeks since my job ended (was a tutor). I worked out with a group of other people that worked at the elementary school because the P.E. teacher had a sort of boot camp for us. Anyway, I am finding it hard to get back to…
So I am slowly trying to get back into running. I've never been super experienced, and I've only ever done one race - a 5k a couple of years ago. What are so solid suggestions for shoes? I've heard from my true runner friends that Mizuno and Brooks are the way to go. I'm also thinking about going to a running store in…
Deadspin's deal thingy they do has one for $60 plus you get a $20 Walmart gift card.
You have seen the commercials, and the internet ads. But you really don't know anybody who has done the whole shebang. No worries! PDXWHY is here, and I will share my review of the entire program including the eating regiment and the resistance band.
As many of you that follow me may know, I'm going through a miserable period in my life. Therefore, I'd like to assign mod status to a few members here. This group is about an aspect of self care I can't personally deal with at the moment.
