Annual Run Rocklin Adds Half-Marathon And New Fund-Raising Opportunities

Annual Run Rocklin Adds Half-Marathon And New Fund-Raising Opportunities

The 11th annual Run Rocklin will be held Sunday, April 6 at Johnson-Springview Park in Rocklin. This year a half-marathon (13.1 miles) will be included, which is a popular distance for many running enthusiasts.

Unlike other half-marathons in the Sacramento region, Run Rocklin offers more rolling hills and challenging terrain. The race starts and ends at Johnson Springview Park, 5480 5th St., Rocklin, CA 95677

“The half-marathon is a very popular, sought-after distance. It’s what a lot of runners are doing locally,” Race Director Larry Osborne said.  Our half-marathon offers a unique combination of a gentle start, up-and-down terrain, rolling hills and a flat fast finish. People have been asking us to add a half-marathon for years. It’s a good time to expand Run Rocklin.”

2014 Weekly Challenge #6: What's YOUR Excuse?

2014 Weekly Challenge #6: What's YOUR Excuse?

This week is about excuses.

We all have them...the voices in our heads that come up with amazing reasons not to work out,  to procrastinate on a project, or to avoid someone we promised to spend time with. These voices are excuses, and we really all do have them and heed them more than we should.

How are your excuses preventing you from living your best life?  How do your excuses steal your Mojo?

If you are having a hard time getting motivated, or staying motivated, take a look at why. What are YOUR excuses and why are you sabotaging yourself?

Slow Cooking

Slow Cooking

The slow cooker, aka the Crock Pot can be such a helpful tool in your kitchen.  Especially if you are very busy and have little time to spend cooking.  But here's the thing, there are so many recipes out there for using the slow cooker that are not clean, healthy eating.  Also, there are many recipes that require some pre-cooking like browning meat on the stove first.  As someone who understands food and the science of cooking, I completely understand why a recipe will yield better results with that method.  As a busy mom, who hates dishes, I feel like it defeats the convenience of the slow cooker.  So this week I wanted to bring you some great recipes that are very easy to assemble and they are healthy.
