Look good, run good.

Nike just released their new LunarEpic low flyknit, a shoe that is designed to fit like a comfortable sock. It’s light weight, but offers ample support for your longer runs. The foam at the heel absorbs impact and helps you achieve the desired ‘heel-to-toe’ running motion. Plus, it comes in tons of cute colors AND gives you the option to design your own. What more can a girl want?

Recipe of the Day

Check out these ‘piña colada’ stove top oats- easy, filling, and restoring after a long morning run. Don’t have all the toppings pictured below? Not a problem. You can substitute any fruit for the bananas, and regular peanut butter works in place of the almond butter. To keep it super simple, just sprinkle some granola on top and enjoy!

Need a break from running today? We’ve got you covered.

Though you may love running, forcing yourself to hit the trails seven days a week is dangerous and damaging. Your body needs time to recover (at least a day) and restore to help build muscle. Even better, try taking 2 days off and using one of them to tackle a new workout. Don’t be concerned about burning the calories or staying in shape- with the right type of exercise, this won’t be a problem.

Don’t know where to get started? Check out these three alternate workouts that burn more calories than a 3 mile run!

Victoria Goss: Taking a chance

Victoria Goss
Victoria Goss, owner and creator of Last Chance Corral in Athens, OH has a passion for rescuing horses, primarily nurse mare foals. Goss believes that she can do the most with the least as long as she is saving innocent lives.

“It didn’t occur to me what I was doing at that point, but I started once in a while taking in a horse temporarily and dealing with it and then passing it along. Even when I started the Last Chance Corral 35 years ago, there were not horse rescues. There was the SPCA and that was it. This was an original idea that I came up with knowing that there were so many [horses] and they didn’t have any place of asylum. They didn’t have an option besides sure and certain death. That’s all they had.

There’s only one thing that’s yours and yours alone, and that’s your reputation. You’re the only one who can make it what it is and hold it to a certain standard. If you’re going to be successful in this world people have to trust you. People are not going to trust you if they feel you are not credible. And you are the only one who can make that happen. No one’s going to give it to you. And they can’t take it from you. They certainly can try and we all know about that. But that kind of being able to visualize your future and the necessity of being true to your ideals, that’s immeasurable.” #PlanetAthens
