Political debates change with every season, but one argument that will never end in North Carolina is where the best barbecue comes from.
You’ve probably seen the commercials. Those deep brown eyes that have cried countless puppy tears, the matted, flea-infested fur begging to be combed and rubbed, and the protruding rib cages, evidence of malnutrition and cruelty.
I spent my Monday morning following Boston Marathon updates, checking the progress of the elite runners between classes (I admit it) on two extended trips to “fill up my water bottle” during class.
There is a joke among my teammates that has become more and more distinguished throughout the past two years. The joke has to do with the relationship between talking on a run and the pace of the run, and the joke is on me.
Spring break is 18 days away. Homework is piling up as teachers prepare for a week of no classes (ugh!). With all the work, it may be difficult to find time to exercise and focus on eating healthy, but if you put in a little extra work now, you will be grateful when your favorite jean shorts and bikini from last summer fit just as well as they did last summer (if not better!) this spring break.
Runner or non-runner, black Friday is a chaotic mess of people, sale signs, and choices. Do I want the dress or the skirt? Dress. Do I want the lacey dress or sparkly dress? Sparkle (always). ….what about new make-up? Or should I spend that money on a new Chi to straighten my hair?
The only thing better than the feeling of sitting down with your family to enjoy a delicious Thanksgiving meal is knowing that you worked for this meal. And no matter how much you eat, you will have an accomplishment to think about at the end of the day (and no, I am not talking about finishing off all the turkey trimmings). Sign up for a Turkey Trot so you can enjoy your Thanksgiving feast.
Leaves have changed the tree line from lush green to brilliant shades of orange, red and yellow and are beginning to fall in every direction. I don’t know if it is the crunch beneath my feet with every stride or the smell of earth from the falling leaves, but there is something about fall that makes running during the fall truly majestic.
Sure the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks is a delicious way to taste the fall season, but are you willing to counter your crisp autumn run by consuming 13 grams of fat and 380 calories? If your answer is no but you’ve still been craving fall foods post-workout (and all other times of the day), I have compiled a few post-workout meal ideas and recipes that not only taste great but also have extra benefits to help you recover faster and stronger for your next workout.
The freshmen are beginning to find their way around campus, the upperclassmen are adjusting to their off-campus apartments and houses, and it finally feels like you can breathe again (without the thick humidity and hectic frenzy of the first few weeks of school).
When I moved back home from Elon for the summer, I faced a problem: my room wasn’t big enough to fit everything from my college dorm (I blame Tanger Outlets grand opening for the majority of this problem). I decided I had to go through all my old clothes…and shoes. No, not like Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City. It wasn’t stilettos I was cleaning out of my closet; it was running shoes-of every color, from every brand. While I admit, buying new running shoes is a guilty pleasure of mine (going out on the trails with a new pair of shoes will guarantee at least one running buddy to enviously eye your bright, clean shoes), buying new shoes frequently is essential for any runner.
1. Aqua Jog- Running outside is great when it’s not humid and 60 degrees out, but it can get dangerous when temperatures soar and humidity builds during the summer. When the only safe time to run is at 7 am, and it just isn’t possible to wake up that early, aqua jogging is a great substitute to running. The goal of an aqua-jogging workout is to mimic a run on land. Take advantage of the deep end of your pool and move your arms and legs in the same way you would if you were running on land. At first, it will feel weird. To help beginners flot, aqua jogging belts can be used, but I would recommend not using the belt, and starting out for a shorter period of time and gradually increase the length of the workout as fitness increases. Workouts can be long, steady jogs or more intense intervals, depending on what you want out of the workout. If you’re the type of person who gets bored running in the same place for a period of time, try visualizing that you are running outside or on a track. This has really helped me. Bringing friends and a stereo is another great way to be entertained while aqua jogging! Two examples of workouts are listed below.
It all started with one 5k. Three miles, two feet, and one long blonde ponytail flying behind a skinny 7 year old girl with the biggest smile on her face. I’m still uncertain whether it was the endorphins from running or the door prizes given out at the end of the race, but from the moment I finished my first road race, was sure of one thing: I was a running adict.
