Beginning a New Chapter

  I started attending a run club clinic ran by The Underground Lab (UGL) last month. A friend of mine posted about it on Facebook so I wanted to give it a try. I had no formal running training and figured if I was going to continue running for exercise I really needed some basic instruction. […]

Make Your Own Protein Snack

You don’t have to spend the money to buy protein snack packs. It’s easy to make them yourself. I cook up a couple chicken breasts and season them with some Kickin’ Chicken seasoning. 2 oz of chicken with an ounce of almonds and a light string mozzarella stick makes for the perfect afternoon snack. It […]
