5 Things I Learned Training for a 5K

I spent the last few months training for a 5k run. I've run close to half a dozen of them in recent years but I've never actually trained for one before. I'm not saying that I'd just pop out of bed on race day and go run but calling what I did real training was a bit of a stretch.

Some Thoughts On Deep Belly Fat

Last week I was listening to Dr. Marina Kurian on Doctor Radio and she had a guest speaker on. I totally forgot his name which is weird because he’s on all the time and I really like and respect him. Scratch that I rarely call my children by the correct name so it’s really not that unusual that I would forget the name of a total stranger that I listen to on the radio once a month. If you also have this name recall issue, I highly recommend that you call your kids by your pet’s name. They get used to it. Back to the story…....more
