Why I Run

Fitness September 22, 2014

See, I have stacks of cookbooks, shelves of health and fitness books, piles of fitness DVDs, and bags full of fitness equipment. And most of it is sitting unused at the moment. Sure I read the books and use the recipes and do the DVDs here and there, but I don’t use all of them all the time. But…

Home workouts are perfect for moms! Contributor Wendy Powell is here to tell you why (and give you some tips to get started).  Before you were a mom, the opportunities to exercise in any way you chose were yours for the taking. Group exercise, solo challenges, running, biking, extreme sports… the streets were yours to roam, the gym was a second home and thrill-seeking was a top priority. I’m not…
