I may have even said all those words before about Nike+ when trying to explain all of its awesomeness to my friends, but this one is definitely raising the bar. Again. Continue reading →

In order for me to function and for my body to work properly, it’s vitally important that I have it. Running is my oxygen. I may sound like a lunatic for saying all that, but those of you reading this, who run, probably know what I’m talking about. Continue reading →
