summertime and staying hydrated

Summer has made her presence known. After a mild few weeks, it appears that the heat is here to stay.

Temps  in NYC have been in the mid-90’s with high levels of humidity. Just gross. Frizzy hair, sweaty faces, stinky subway rides – the whole deal.

Can you feel the heat?

This race was done virtually, participants just had to log their miles at some point between March 9th and 10th through their Nike+ app.

At first I thought the concept was sort of silly but then the more I thought about it, the more I kind of liked the idea.

in case you need some motivation

I know we all know that we should move more and eat less to stay healthy and fit. But research is just starting to reveal how unhealthy it is to be sitting all day.

Great Gym Reminders

Even as someone who studies nutrition and fitness, I find myself falling into ruts on occasion. I tend to fall back on the same routine and can have ups and downs with my own personal fitness. Although I may understand the science behind exercise, I find that it is always good reinforcement and motivation to read up on what other people are saying or doing.

 

wait, there’s more!
