Advocare 24 Day Challenge: Before We Begin

I’ve written a few times on this blog about my struggles with weight gain/loss. A few years ago, over the course of about 2 years, I gained a significant amount of weight. Before our wedding, I managed to lose about 25 pounds of it by counting calories and running and was very happy with my progress. That said, because I have hypothyroidism (and despite taking medicine to bring my thyroid hormones up to normal levels), losing weight is a very [...]

The Sprinter vs. the Marathoner

While perusing the internet over the weekend, I stumbled upon a YouTube video explaining the differences between the sprinter and the marathoner.  The video shared the differences between fast and slow twitch muscles while also explaining the way these differences affect your physical appearance and performance.

I’ve already seen some of the movies I’ll share, but others I’ll be watching for the first time (recommendations are welcome!). To kick things off, I’ve chosen one of my favorite movies, Forrest [...]

The Day After the Marathon

We did it!  Meagan and I both completed our first marathons this past Sunday, and since then, we’ve been trying to heal up by staying off our feet, rolling out the sore spots with a foam roller and The Stick, and wearing our recovery socks as much as possible.  For anyone who has completed a marathon (or other particularly difficult race/run), or for those minimalist runners out there who have experienced “calfocalypse” after going for their first big run in [...]

Altra 2014 Line-up

About two years ago, this site was launched with little intention of having anyone outside of our family and close friends read it.  Little did we know that our little site would manage to pick up so much steam, giving us the ability to review products from so many different amazing companies.  Aside from our own growth, we’ve been able to watch several companies go from a garage to an office, and from bankrupt to highly profitable, plus we’ve seen [...]
