Book Review: Dream Big by Kat Kronenberg

Kat Kronenberg’s Dream Big was an accidental find for me. I was in search of a book by the same title to check off a genre on the PopSugar 2017 reading challenge that I’m having fun with this year. As I shared with you in my review of another book by the same name, anything with “Dream

I learned about Leslie Zimmerman’s book, Dream Big, while I was reading George W. Bush’s Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors.

An often overlooked American literature classic, Smith takes the reader on a journey that

Rocking the Run and Having Fun in KAST Fitness Wear

There’s no better feeling than to cross the finish line and hear the photographer call out, “Giiirrrl, look at you rocking those adorable tights. I’ve just gotta get a photo of you!” Especially when you’ve been crossing finish lines for 20 years and it’s the first time for that to happen. I’ve recently stumbled upon KAST

Product Review: MyHydrate Hydration System

A few weeks ago I accidentally discovered a product that is a contender for my favorite product of 2017: the MyHydrate Hydration System. In short, it’s a water bottle that tracks how much you drink in a 24 hour period. The perfect gadget for any endurance athlete (or anyone) that struggles to consume adequate amounts
