Yerba Mate benefits your health in many ways. I’ve managed to kicked my coffee habit by rediscovering the great taste and health benefits of this drink.
I love running because it is a healthy thing to do. Running helps me shed extra pounds. I also know that it’s possible to improve my running ability with consistent practice, no matter how out-of-shape or fit I am at the moment. A few months ago I started a regular running routine. After a few […]
Health has been a passion of mine since the 4th grade. I started gaining a lot of weight back then, and struggled with obesity all the way through high school.

Geoff Roes – an elite American ultra-marathon runner – won an incredible race in the rugged Alaskan outback last week. Though, instead of saying he ‘won,’ it would be better to say he ‘survived the fastest.’ The 350 mile foot-race took a full week to complete in absolutely insane conditions. He pulled all his own […]
I did not race this year (see my report from the 2011 race), but over the past weekend 500 runners (including hundreds of Tarahumara) met in the bottom of Urique canyon and ran 50 miles through the heat, dust and rugged canyons in a celebration of the Tarahumara culture.
