Tuesday's Tip - December 23rd

"Use your health, even to the point of wearing it out. That is what it's for. Spend all you have before you die; and do not outlive yourself." -- George Bernard Shaw



Wish I May, Wish I Might..

Well, once again the holidays are upon us! If any of you were stressing about what to get me for Hanukkah, never fear! I've put together a little list to help you out :)

My wish list:
Dynamax 14lb medicine ball
Rogue bar and Bumper Plates
York Press Squat Stand
Concept 2 Model D Rower
NordicTrack Commercial ZS Treadmill
Stud Bar

And of course, a Garage to store it all in as well as ample free Time in which to use it :)

Happy Holidays!

Tuesday's Tip - December 9th

Eggscellent!! (via)




ETA: Looks neat, doesn't it? It also looks a lot easier than it is! I confess to attempting to "peel" my egg using this method just a short while ago. Sadly, I was unsuccessful in accomplishing anything other than looking rather silly.

Hide and Seek

Imagine, if you will: It's winter time. Sunset occurs at 4:29 pm. Complete darkness follows not long after. You get home from work, and decide to go for a run. You are a responsible athlete, and as such you don your reflective vest, or a headlamp, or at the very least something light colored.

Right?

Then explain to me why I've been set upon TWICE this week by runners dressed in BLACK running along UNLIT suburban streets? They are damned lucky that my lead foot was disengaged at those moments, and that I was able to see them before plowing into their stupid, dark and virtually invisible asses.

Come on, people! As a road runner you're already at a huge disadvantage - you're small and squishy and cars are big, heavy and made out of metal. Make yourself as big as you can when you hit the roads. Light colors, retro reflective materials, LCD lights.

I'm going for a twilight run on Sunday. If you want to find me, just look for the short girl in the fluorescent HiViz yellow vest and all manner of twinkling lights. You'll squint when you see me, and that suits me just fine.
