Lessons From a Half Marathon: Do Epic Shit.

Lessons From a Half Marathon: Do Epic Shit.

Running was one of those things that always seemed about as pleasurable to me as a root canal without Novocaine. I could not understand why people would put themselves through such a boring and pointless form of exercise.

Motivation Mondays! From the Editor: There is no second place.

Like most good little suburban girls, I grew up in the well-rounded throws of piano lessons, soccer and dance, a rotation which I finally narrowed to just dance in high school.  Even though I left the “sports” world as a freshman in high school I still continued to compete as a dancer, and felt the […]

Motivation Mondays! Video: “The Last Lecture”

From the Editor: A Change Is Sure To Come

With every step forward in a new and stronger direction, it means a change has occurred. To many, the concept of change is terrifying.  Nothing is harder than abandoning your thoughts, actions, and beliefs that have become a part of you to venture into territory where you don’t know what the outcome will be.  Everyone […]
