Product Review: “Men’s Starter Compression Shorts” from Walmart.

So, this review is going to be a no brainer for long-time runners.  I suggest skipping right over it.  However, for newer runners it might be helpful! I have read about “compression shorts” – and thought to myself that I

Chris Thater Race Report… JUST KIDDING!!!

So, this last weekend was the Chris Thater Memorial Races.  Now practically speaking this is mostly a bunch of bicycle races (with a motorcycle as the “pace-car.”  I love watching the motorcycle “lead the pack.”) but on sunday at 10 am

Freaky Friday! – Strange things found around the Interwebs! – Water Shoes!
