THE PERFECT PRE-DATE HOLIDAY APPETIZER

Last night, hubby Mark and I ventured out for a Holiday date night. My mind raced with the unhealthy food that might cross my mind and my palate.

This isn’t rocket science, running requires only a good pair of shoes and putting one foot in front of the other! What you might not think about is your core strength or even less likely your arms and how they make you a more efficient runner. Just 10 to 20 minutes a few times weekly … Read More
