No matter what the weather forecast or what time of year, trying to figure out what to wear for a marathon can be a huge source of stress. Not only do you have to spend 16 weeks training to run a 26.2-mile race, but you have to decide what to wear on race day, too? That’s just bonkers! No one needs that much stress in their lives.

April 4th, 2014 will mark the start of the second ever Gulf Sate Interstate Relay.

If I ate a cupcake for every time someone had asked me if I’d ever taken a Barre class over the past year or so, well (if it’s even possible) I’d be REALLY sick of cupcakes by now. What was even more annoying than constantly being questioned about the exercise fad, though, was the fact that I had never given it a go. I had no opinion to offer those who were questioning curiously.

Thanks to my membership at the NYC Reebok Sports Club (courtesy of FitFluential) and my new exercise schedule that makes group ex classes ideal, I no longer have to answer The Barre Question with a “no.” I’ve finally boarded the Barre bandwagon and if you ask me if I’ve ever tried it and what I think of it, I’ll happily throw some thoughts at you.

Find Fun Ways to Stay Fit with Blood Sweat & Cheers, My Cinema Cycle Review + A Chance to Win an iPad Mini!

I’m extremely picky about which email newsletters I want to catch up with on a regular basis. Unless they’re extremely fun and offer content that’s useful and intelligent, it drives me crazy to have extra, unnecessary emails that I’ll never read clogging up my inbox. But the ones that I do subscribe to, I really and truly enjoy. Despite my strict inbox standards, I recently welcomed one more newsletter subscription to my super exclusive list. And having been subscribed for several weeks now, I can honestly say that I’m so happy I that did.
