Content marketing: Telling Meaningful Stories

The difficulty of running in unfamiliar places

I didn’t used to call myself a runner, but have now logged months where I’ve run 80 miles. So maybe I am a runner now, though, a slow one. I often go anywhere from 6-8 miles and the longest distance as of March 31, 2014, ever has been 11.6 miles. I have some favorite routes at […]

February 21, 2014

My Fitness Tips

I’ve found the days when I’m the busiest to be the easiest when it comes to calorie-intake control. Yes, when I’m busy I will also get hungry at some point, but I also won’t think of eating as much. A no-calorie snack also helps get through the day. Many times, it was a good day […]
