Healthy Lifestyles with Kikkan Randall
Embrace the New Super Hero!
As a little kid way back when, we let our imaginations run wild as we read those thin, ten cent comic books, filled with the adventures of Spiderman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and a bunch of other awesome and powerful Super Heroes. Our little kid brains had us pinning on towels and jumping off ledges, racing […]
The F Word
FIBER. It’s a good word! An important and vital part of your daily health and diet. It’s not just a word because if you look around, it’s a thing and it’s everywhere. Plants, trees, nuts and for sure, store bought supplements. I like to think of it as a net that captures and scoops up […]

Her parents didn’t […]
For so many years I believed I could survive on very few hours of sleep. Needing sleep was a weakness, and fatigue and tiredness were states of mind. It was like a competition, silent or otherwise, to see how much I could get done on the least amount of sleep possible. Well now I am […]
Just do it
The phrase is so simple. So easy to remember. A tag line that flattens excuses. It just so happens there is a story behind it. A rather creepy story. I was less than pleasantly surprised because I love this slogan. So I started to tell you what the story was, but then decided if you […]
