Red Carpet Workout During the Oscars

Nothing like seeing the gorgeous gowns, designer shoes and dazzling jewels to wish you were walking the red carpet at the Oscars!

Reebok BOKS Program

For us Boston-based folks, it is amazing that the Reebok World Headquarters are in our area. I visited recently to learn more about an equally amazing program called BOKS Kids.

Mini Marathon Monday

Today is “Marathon Monday” in Boston, which I am very familiar with (after running 5 of them). If you can get out to the marathon route with the kids, it can be a fun experience to share. Before you go, get them into the fun by making big signs to cheer the runners. Just pack […]
