I ran my first marathon a week before my youngest daughter turned one. Never in her memory has there been a time when I didn’t dress primarily in spandex, consume copious amounts of gels and energy chews, or spend the dark early hours of a Saturday morning out on a run. It was after one of these long runs that I returned to find Ali, who was three at the time, on her stomach rolling back and forth over a foam roller. When I asked what she was doing she simply said, “Playing mommy.” In her eyes, this is ...
Does stretching reduce sports injuries? This question is a hot topic with much debate and conflicting evidence. I will present a few studies and then make my recommendation based on experience. I have run four marathons and countless other long distance races and have some insight on this topic. I am also a chiropractor and treat many sports-related injuries.
The Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center can rightly be called a 6,400-acre classroom.

Mile 12 of a tough half-marathon. My hamstring is tight, ready to snap like an overstretched rubber band. My lungs are full of fire. My head is pounding harder than my feet. I will run nowhere near as fast as I usually run. No PR’s on this day, yet I feel prouder and more accomplished than ever.
PHOENIX, Arizona — Phoenix offers wonderful opportunities for playing golf during the winter and early spring, but here are some lesser known adventures to experience on your next visit.
ALBERTA, Canada — What do black bears, grizzly bears, tule elk and non-typical whitetail deer all have in common? The world records for each animal, as recognized by the Boone and Crockett Club, were not taken by a hunter. Instead, the massive animals died of other causes and were found later and reported.
SCARY TOWN — I am not an extreme sport guy. I wish I were, it’d make me much cooler. In fact, my wife and I just got life insurance, and we were asked the following questions: Do you SCUBA dive? Do you skydive? Do you rock climb? Do you ski?
Hello, folks - Tight Line Jr. here, hoping everyone is staying warm and toasty.
Sitting in the car with the heater and seat warmers on full blast, I look out the window at a chilly scene. The wind is howling. The sky is gray. The water on the lake looks as choppy and uneven as my self-cut bangs in third grade. Awake since 4:30 a.m., I’ve already taught a strength training class, thrown a load of laundry in the washer and herded the girls to school. It’s always tempting to drive home and crawl under the covers, but I never do. No matter how tired I am, no matter how ...

In June 2013 Nik Wallenda, of the famous Flying Wallenda circus family, walked 1,500 feet above the Little Colorado River Gorge on nothing more than a 2-inch steel cable. It took a little more than 22 minutes to walk the quarter-mile battling 30 mph winds and dust along the way. Talk about a balancing act.
