  • PR's today - 10 mile, 15 k, 10 k

  • Core Training for Runners:Roman Chair Situps on Glute Ham Raise Bench
    Roman Chair Situps, a classic Ab Training exercise requires that you support your upper legs or hips and secure your feet while facing up. Your upper body is completely unsupported.

  • Hanging around for super six-pack abs?

  • Dressing for Below Zero Running
    Went out early this morning, 7:00 AM, for a cold winter run.
