Re: How do you stick to your healthy eating habits?

I just started using the myfitnesspal app and it is pretty comprehensive. Another tip I find is that if I brush my teeth at lunch or after a snack I'm less likely to want to eat anything other than water. Anything minty is good for this. So chewing a minty piece of gum or sipping on some minty tea ...

Re: Trails and Ticks

But other than LD (which is non-existant in MB so maybe I'm a bit biased), I've never understood why people freak out about ticks. They can carry a whole host of microbes that can cause amongst other things encephalitis (e.g. Powassan virus). http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/id-mi/tickinfo-eng.php" oncli...

Re: Veteran Arrested At Marathon-Misunderstood ?

It is not so much being uneducated as not understanding risks. The risk of needing a gun to protect yourself or your family, if you are just a normal citizen is very, very low. I don't carry a gun because I don't need to carry a gun. I use the same reasoning for not carrying rattlesnake antidote. A...

Re: Blisters...to pop or not to pop?

I got a blister on the ball of my foot (in the space under my big toe and first toe) while walking the dog on Monday. I was worried because it was in a prime spot to be an issue in my heels (stilettos) at the Mess Dinner last night. I did not pop it and it settled back down and was not even noticeab...

Re: Information on cooking oils?

This just showed up in my FB newsfeed...I thought it timely. The smoke point of coconut oil may not be all that high, but it doesn't oxidize at high heat like other oils. I think that is where the "health" kicks in. http://notstepfordwives.com/cooking-oils" onclick="window.open(this.href);...

Re: Phone apps vs. GPS watches

I tested my iPhone vs. my Blackberry vs my 305 a few times on courses up to 10 km and they were always within the margin of error. I used my iPhone for about a year because i was thinking "I'm carrying it anyway". I've now switched back to the 305 because I find (because of how I train) I...

Unbelievable! The official time was 4:09 which would be a crowded time on the course (although it's just alway crowded, isn't it). The video I saw from CNN shows that spectators, not runners, were in the thick of the blast. This is the most bizarre terrorist attack - what is the target? What would ...
