How to prevent weight gain when you cut back on running - With no big races scheduled until the fall, I’m currently in the middle of an off season.

Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia: seven recipes with chia seeds - When I was young, I used to love those chia pet commercials. Who knew all these years later, I’d be downing the seeds for my health?

Training in the real world: when sickness strikes - Regardless your race distance, that training plan becomes far more than a guide for the 10 to 20 weeks you follow it – it becomes gospel. But what happens when it all gets derailed by illness? It’s bound to happen eventually. Anything from sniffles to sneezes, stomach upset to body aches and fatigue.
