Banana Beet Blueberry Kale Smoothie

Beets: It’s what’s for dinner! One of my favorite new discoveries in creating healthy smoothies is the beet smoothie. Beets are the fundamental healthy base. I stumbled upon this recipe by accident and spent at least 2 months trying to perfect this recipe...

Super-Duper Speed Drills

How does one become a faster runner? Here are a few suggestions: 1. Occasional  speed tests (5k, 10k, mile, 800s, 5mi). I’m […]
