Meadow Muffins joins running craze

Meadow Muffins is kicking off the Muff's Running Club on Thursday, April 1.

And this is no April Fool's joke. The running craze is back in Colorado Springs with organized runs setting participation records on almost every Saturday.

Kids eat veggies? Get them started early!

About a year ago, my husband and a friend of his started a small organic garden on my parent's ranch south of Fountain. Since then, it's become a 16-member CSA that grows over 20 different types of veggies and fruits.

Being a part of that has brought many changes to our life. We have moved from our mountain playground in Green Mountain Falls, to the plains. Another change I've noticed is our 2 year old son. When we would include lettuce and other store-bought greens from the store, he… Continue

No swim workout today

I love the snow and all but getting up at 5:00am and driving on an ice rink to the pool really isn't my idea of a good time. So I'll be riding the bike trainer today!

Peak Region Cyclist Show

This weekend's Peak Region Cyclist show was a good old time. Getting a feel for the local cycling community, and connecting with a lot of good people made staying inside on the nicest saturday this year totally worth it. Props to the Front Rangers Junior riders for winning the 1min watts/kg test at the Carmichael Training Systems booth. Those kids are going places.
