Have you ever taken a good look at the space just in front of you when the morning sun shines directly in your windows? If you have pets or live anywhere other than in a hermetically sealed envelope, you are probably used to seeing fine floating particles that are nearly unidentifiable … but if you have allergies they are all… Read More ›

RunBike, The Duckbilled Platypus of Workout Equipment

When I saw the RunBike on Runner’s World this morning, it took a good two minutes before I stopped laughing/choking on my coffee. I was speechless, but once I recovered from my initial “WHY!?!” response, some more serious questions came to mind. 1) How on earth do you run uphill while strapped into that thing? 2) How long is a… Read More ›

An Ingenious Dieting Tool: The Diet Fork

I saw this on Etsy, and thought it was cute. Want to look more svelte? Try eating less with a “Diet Fork”. You’ll be so frustrated by the time you are done trying to stab your spaghetti or rice, that you’ll just naturally begin eating less, your stomach will shrink, and you’ll live happily ever after!
