Quote of the Month:

"The reason you want every single thing that you want, is because you think you will feel really good when you get there. But, if you don't feel really good on your way to there, you can't get there. You have to be satisfied with what-is while you're reaching for more."

-- Abraham

Do your Muscles Get Sore When Running?

Do your muscles get sore when running? Does your IT Band make running difficult at times? Do you feel like you need a deep tissue massage after running? If these issues are a problem for you, a foam roller may be the solution you are looking for.

Using a foam roller is a convenient and inexpensive way to give yourself a self-myofascial release or self-massage at home. Using your own body weight to put pressure on the areas you feel need relaxing and releasing, you can direct the workout to where you need it most. Using a foam roller regularly can help prevent injuries and speed recovery from existing injuries.

Not sure how to use a foam roller? Check out this article which includes a great video on How to Use a Foam Roller.

Under Armour- “The Hardest-Working Bras in Sports”

Ladies, are you guilty of runners' bounce and not getting the support you need while running? Maybe you have tried wearing two sports bras, which do provide more support than one, but they are not so comfortable. Perhaps a new Under Armour sports bra would give you the support you need to run bounce-free!

Every female athlete knows the importance of a well-made sports bra. Under Armour delivers the performance, support and comfort you’ve come to expect without compromise.

Check out the video in the link below featuring American sprinter Natasha Hastings and American tennis player Sloane Stephens doing what they do best in their Under Armour sports bras.

Recipe of the Month: Avocado and Egg Bake

These healthy treats are great for breakfast or served an appetizer.

Avocado and Egg Bake


  • Avocado
  • Eggs (2 eggs per avocado)
  • Ceyanne Pepper
  • Grated Cheese


  1. Cut an avocado in half length-wise and remove the pit.
  2. Scoop out some avocado to make the hole big enough for an egg.
  3. Place the avocado halves in a baking pan. You may want to use a small deep baking pan to help keep the avocado balanced.
  4. Pour an egg into each avocado. Some of the egg white may pour out, but it will bake with the avocados, so not to worry about wasting it. :)
  5. Sprinkle with the ceyanne pepper and a little grated cheese.
  6. Bake at 350F degrees until egg whites are cooked and yolks are desired wellness. Mine were cooked in 15 minutes.
  7. Serve hot.
