To celebrate 12-12-12, come ride 12 miles on the SART at 12:12 PM. Looking for 11 other riders to join me so we can at least have 12 people riding. (More is ok!)

Exercise protects even if obese!

11-16-12: Another study just came out showing that exercise protects even if one is overweight or obese. This may be a big wake-up call to those who are in the "healthy BMI range" (below 25) but are inactive 'couch potatoes" because they die at 2x the rate than overweight execisers. Exercising has a protective effect against even other risk factors. To read more about this study, check out this link here.

Make your treadmill workout like outside...

11-16-12: We know that running on the treadmill is "easier" than running outside at the same speed. So how do you compensate? Some researchers found that setting your treadmill at 3% incline will mimic running on flat, windless, conditions outside. You can read more about it in this Men's Health article.
