Seasonal allergies are yucky!

Sunshine is free and, with the nice weather and more free time, I've been capitalizing on it. Like I mentioned in my last post, I'm trying to bring more of my workout (and general enjoyment) into the outdoors. Biking, running on the mountain, and walks have all become nice parts of my week. However, there's one thing about this beautiful weather that gives me a bit of worry. My *GASP* seasonal allergies.

I hate these guys, always mucking up my face, playing with my asthma, and just generally being kind of a jackasses. I want no more of that. But how will I attempt to banish these foul foes? Read on.

Free to Cheap Physical Activity: Spring Edition

This weekend has a few holidays in it- Easter and Passover will be coming in along with those days off. While dreaming of how to make the holiday dinner a bit easier and pondering how to avoid the abundance of candy at the store/ in your house, you might find yourself thinking about the sunshine.

Spring is here (kinda, depending on the day) and, with that comes beautiful weather (sometimes) and occasionally a desire to be outside. So, I'm heading out there and taking some of my workout with me. Not only is it free (or cheap), but playing in the great outdoors can provide you with a variety of surfaces, challenges, and settings, give you some fresh air (again, depending on the day), and a dose of sunshine.
