Fitness Friday :: Can One Simple Stretch Lead to a Tight Behind??

To be quite honest, I’ve been slacking in the fitness department this summer.  I’m running and playing tennis here and there but have only done a weight routine once since May.  I go back to school August 5 and will get back into a gym routine then.

Hashing :: A Fun Way to Run

Mr. SP and I have a long history with hash running.  In fact, our first date in February of 1993 was to be a hash.  We had a big snowstorm that day and the hash was cancelled, but soon after we had our hash date. What is a hash?  Hashing involves two or more “hares” […]
