Girl Talk: Why I Ran A Half-Marathon

In fifth grade I was the new kid in school, which is always hard. But I think it’s hardest in gym class. Especially if you’re the new “chubby” kid with zero athletic ability. Hello locker room spitballs.

Do Yoga And Booze Make A Good Cocktail?

I made a bunch of resolutions for myself for 2010, among them to attend yoga at least three times a week. For a few months last year, I actually made it to class four times a week, but the further we got into the dark season, my winter doldrums set in and I just couldn’t…

High Heels Mess With Posh’s Posture?

OK, so maybe all those “high heels can kill you!” stories are a bit extreme, but wearing 4-inch stilettos everyday could potentially do a number on your posture.

I recently crossed something off my bucket list. At 29-almost-30, I finally learned how to surf.

How To Get Michelle Obama’s Arms

Woman’s got guns. And by guns, I mean a not-too-Madonna-esque but still muscle-y set of arms. I want them. Badly. Luckily, someone hunted down her trainer to get the how-to.
