Little League Isn't for Kids

The kids asked me after my Princess Disney Half Marathon if I won. I love the possibilities of youth. After all it is a race, their mom is awesome, of course she won. There's that pesky truth we know as adults: Someone is always faster. I try to explain to them the nuance of success. The woman who won the race holds the American record for the half marathon. Her record is 1 hour and 7 minutes. There's a lot I can do in an hour and seven minutes, but running 13.1 ain't one of 'em. ...more

Top Recreational Sports for Good Health

If you're looking to stay in shape, there's no better way to reach your goal than with an activity you love to do. There's a major difference between "heading to the gym" and playing a sport. Among other things, you'll find it a lot easier to motivate yourself with a sport that's fun to play. Not only will you stay in shape, with many of these spots you'll also enjoy a little friendly competition, have a chance to catch up with your old friends, and maybe meet some new friends....more

I love cardio kick boxing…But I participate in every single one of those....more
