Has anyone ever started a fitness challenge? I would like to hear about it!I will be participating in my first Triathlon in October. I have raced in different obstacle races and running races but never a triathlon. First off there is a novice race I will try out on August 9th to get my feet wet on what it will be like to transition between swimming, biking and running.Are there any other suggestions on what I should do to prepare?
Today’s typical golfer faces many challenges. Not only are golf courses becoming longer and more difficult, but today’s golfer is actually less prepared to play the game.

It is challenging to stay on track with eating and exercising on a day to day basis, but when life throws you curve balls with work demands, health issues, and family needs, it can be almost impossible. Almost. With some planning and care, you can create a menu with healthy meals that are quick to prepare and take time to schedule "me" time to get your exercise. So, why do I find myself and so many others lost and unmotivated when we do lose our way and stray from being "on track". I call it the "unforgiveable factor".
