Ride Share Driving For Lyft Atlanta

I bought a Chevy Cruze last year and now drive exclusively for Lyft although I am cleared for Uber too...

Bionic Runner is the world’s only high intensity, non-impact, running-specific trainer.

What is the Bionic Runner? It is a non-impact cross-trainer most have never heard of but those that train with it are setting Masters aged world records when many older athletes either taper down their run mileage or stop running all together.

Mission Apolo Is Built By Chocolate Milk And Ready For Kona IRONMAN World Championship

The IRONMAN World Championship Built by Chocolate Milk series with Apolo Ohno and last year with Hines Ward, is a true testament to the recovery power of this delicious choco liquid drink and these aging athletes. I enjoyed blogging about their training habits, sports technology and build up to this Big Island event. Unfortunately, our Sports Techie community blog Q &A request to fellow Seattleite Ohno was again denied by the former speed skating world champion so we wish him and teammates, Jen Ator the best come Saturday.
