Get the Body of an Action Hero (Or at Least of the Actors Who Play Them)

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Soldier of Steel™. Last week, the movie buzz was all around Spirit of the Marathon II, and I was so lucky to have caught the sneak preview of it one week prior. It was so neat to get to see runners just like me achieve their marathon dreams! I’ve said it before and I will say it again: the feeling of crossing the finish line at a marathon never {Read More}

75th Marathon: Coast to Coast Challenge!

Though I just got my recap of last weekend up yesterday, tonight kicks off another busy and exciting weekend. It all began when I finally took the time to tally up my marathons (in an Excel worksheet, obviously) and realized that I was starting to approach the 75 mark.
