Do you guys remember the Primal Professional, the barefoot dress shoe startup we posted about when they were first launching on Indiegogo in 2011?

Sometimes It’s Okay to Have a Cheat Day

Sometimes It’s Okay to Have a Cheat Day

by Jamie on Feb 12, 2018 0

The holidays really screwed up my fitness plan. It’s now the middle February and I still haven’t fully recovered. My New Year’s Resolution of running three or more times a week sounded so good in theory, but it’s so hard to do in reality. Spring is (slowly) on its way and I still feel weighed […]

  Most days, I just stick to my typical route — I know it well and can run it without thinking. It’s perfect for a routine. Some days, however, it’s nice to get a change of scenery. For me, this typically means a weekend run when I have extra time to really appreciate my surroundings. […]

Gym laundry, the worst laundry

by Grace on Sep 07, 2017 0

There’s nothing quite like a good workout and working up a good sweat. Getting home after working hard and taking a nice, hot shower is one of the best feelings in the world.
