Right now, around the world, there are people who cannot afford access to basic nutrition. This is not simply something that happens in Africa. This weekend I spent teaching a seminar at the local food bank on how to eat healthy when living on... (more)
Quick question; Just come off a 6 month phase working up my running/cardio ability for a work based role. Little to say it didn't work out. Currently have a 9:30min 2.4k and are looking to hold onto it with as little running as possible. Trying... (more)
Im determined to get into sleeping on the floor. I live in an apartment with hardwood floors. Im thinking about getting a japanese futon but before I do I want to try out sleeping on the floor with something cheaper thats also available in a... (more)
I just sleep on a yoga mat. I got it for $20 at Target. Then again, I live in Miami so the temperature of the floor is never an issue (in summer I sleep directly on the floor to take advantage of the cooler temp).

Is there a link? I have three pairs of them and LOVE them! I have holes already in my casual walking Minimus shoes. I also have the Crossfit specific version and those are almost worn out as well. I replaced my Vibrams with these as they didn't... (more)
I'm asking because I thought I was taking the transition fairly slowly (three weeks of only walking in them, then only 2 miles running at a time), but still ended up with a very painful stress fracture on the top of my 2nd metatarsal (and a... (more)
So, for a while now, I've had this strange desire to minimalize my diet, and rid of anything that's superfluous. Also, to be honest, I don't always enjoy eating complicated meals. On a little experiment, for the past 7 days I've only been... (more)
