How About Those Vegitarians Cutting Heart Risk by 32%?

You heard this before, consider dropping flesh meats and fish, and cut your risks of heart attack by a whopping 32%!   I don’t believe there’s a pharmaceutical medicine or invention in this world could do this.

Sweet Pain!

Sweet Pain!

In 1996, a Pakistani artist by the name of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan released a song called Sweet Pain (from the album Night Song).  I find it sort of a meditative song I’ve listen to for year, but basically on feelings (I don’t understand one blessed word in that joint!).  But if you are up to experience something new,(…)

Run Fearless or Go Home!

Yesterday as I was running my longest run of the week and stopped to change the music playing on my Nike Plus program (just before it died), an elderly man saw me looking sweaty and disheveled and said, “I guess you’re going home.” When I understood he was referring to the message on the back(…)

A CRITICAL RUNNING NURSE REPORT: Something to Run For.

  A Running Nurse Special Report: Okay people, here it is.  We have been watching this disturbing trend for a while now.  Over the past three decades or more, this trend has been growing along with our robust waistlines.
