Fall is a season of change and Halloween is a holiday that allows us to step outside of ourselves. So, instead of wearing a mask of fear to hide this year, take control and try it on. Embrace the mask of fear; see fear with a new perspective.
I've been told by people involved in physical education that gym class has changed since when I was a kid in the 1980s. Now it's about individual achievement and exercise programs. It wasn't like that when I was a kid.

Maybe at first, dating a runner might not seem like a bright idea. Really, who wants to spend the majority of their time with a fitness-obsessed freak who usually wakes up before the sun is out, hands over their hard-earned cash for race entry fees and is probably missing a few toenails?

My friend Susan Shofner fought her battle and continues to win it every day as a 18-year breast cancer survivor. Susan was kind enough to share what she learned. We hope it will help you -- whether you're the one faced with a diagnosis or the one holding her hand.
Stop. Just stop. Stop mourning the end of summer. Stop dreading the start of winter. It's still a few months away. Be in the moment. Be in autumn. Be happy about it!
It's just eight minutes; I definitely waste eight minutes three or four times over in the course of even a hard day with two little kids. Why am I not prioritizing the thing I most need?
Spread the word, challenge your friends and family to go on the wagon for #14DAYS and be in solidarity with those of us who walk this path perhaps first out of necessity, but then hopefully out of love.
Sensing that a growing number of people are forgoing their gym membership in favor of specialized experiences like boot camps or cycling studios, some gyms have begun partnering with smaller boutique studios, offering them temporary or permanent space and giving their customers access to the gym's amenities.
A few minutes of movement can work wonders for your body and mind. You do not have to change into your gym clothes and sweat it out. You don't even have to lay on a mat.

6.2 miles is not so far that it intimidates new runners, but it's far enough to qualify as a worthy goal -- whether you're a newbie or seasoned pro. If you relate more with the former, fear not. With the right training plan and mindset, you'll arrive at the starting line prepped, ready, and injury-free.
A big part of this running thing is mental, so be confident in the foods you use to fuel your feet. Stop thinking "diet" and start thinking "nutrition." You can certainly try someone else's running meal plan that appeals to you, but empower yourself to make it your own.
My son asked me if I'd had a bad run. "No, Bud. There's no such thing as a bad run. Some are just tougher than others. Those are the ones that make us stronger."
Nature is talking to us; we should listen! Bundle up in that new sweater, eat that pumpkin pie, and crunch through some leaves; truly enjoy the season! But don't forget to supplement the physical changes with emotional ones.
Losing weight is hard work. There's no denying it. Setting a goal to lose any amount of weight whether it be 5 pounds or 25 pounds takes a level of commitment. You need to set your goal, make a fitness plan, follow a strict diet, and keep track of your food intake.
Ever wonder what people do to stay happy? We all want to be happy, it is one of the greatest feelings you can achieve, but maintaining that happiness can be a difficult pursuit. Life is filled with daily stresses and anxieties that can quickly wipe away a smile.
Thanks to those sturdy harnesses, the instructors were able to alleviate some of our body weight just by holding onto our safety ropes, leaving the bulk of the work on me to perform the motions rather than hold myself up on the bar -- honestly, it was much easier than it looks.
