Follow a Cleveland Runner

Got friends running the Cleveland Marathon or Half Marathon Sunday (May 20)?  Sign up to track them and you’ll get their splits via email, Facebook, Twitter or text message.



Paralyzed woman finished marathon

This left me speechless. I lost it at the 13-month-old (“Mummy’s gonna getcha…)”



Build Your Fantasy

I’m not even going to pretend that I have a clue what the whole fantasy-league stuff is about, but I know that some of you are really into it (baseball, football), so I share this—you can now have your own fantasy track & field team. Um, have fun…I guess. (Note: this apparently started last week, so I don’t know if you can still join in the fantasy fun).



Calories vs. Carbs

Should you be counting calories or watching carbs? A doctor weighs in. This advice has recently run true for me, after 10+ years of a low-calorie, low-fat diet, I’ve got the other way and lost 12 lbs. without really trying.



Dude, WHERE can I get some fly headphones like those? (Oh, right, 1983).

Greatest workout songs evah

Men’s Health has come up with a list of the 10 greatest workout songs of all time and, I gotta say, they hit it. There’s only one on the list that makes me go, huh?



Wear your accomplishments on your wrist

Did you know you can buy cool running-theme and race beads for your Pandora bracelet? I found them at, but I’m sure they’re sold all over the place.  P.S.  If you don’t know what a “Pandora” bracelet is? (It’s like an updated version of charm bracelet where you add beads that are meaningful to you…and where the manufacturer and jewelry shops make a mint off tiny charms/beads that probably cost $1.20 to make).



Beaver anal gland juice , it’s what’s for dinner (maybe)

If this Rodale article “The 15 Grossest Things Your Eating” isn’t enough to make you lose your appetite, I really don’t know what will. Hyperbole? Likely, but…you clicked and ewwwwwed, didn’t you?



T-shirt of the week
