    Recover with ice and heat

    As runners we have all probably “run” into an injury or two once in our running lifetime. Am I right? How did you first treat it when it happened? Did you just take 2 tyenol? Did you go to the doctors? Did you ignore it? I have found a pretty effective way to reduce pain…

  • Be a dreamer

    I just wanted to take a little moment and remind of you of the importance of chasing your dreams. What is a dream? A dream a goal with a deadline. I have always been a dreamer, I have always wished and hoped for things to happen. But they won’t happen if I don’t chase them…
