To be a runner, it doesn’t take much, aside from the will to run and an ability to propel yourself in a generally forward direction. Many people run nearly every day of the week, sometimes repeating the same routes day in and day out, and they’re completely happy with their running. Others like to intermix different types of running into their weekly ritual – some long runs, some short, some fast, some slow, some trails, or some hills, for example – and they find the interplay between all these different types of runs helps to make them fast, strong, and injury-free.
Another way to mix-up your running is to base your training around a particular race. Running simply for the sake of running is great, and for many people, that’s where their love of running begins and ends. For many others, however, having a race scheduled on the calendar helps enliven their training a little bit more and brings about an additional layer of accountability and structure to their weekly running. It might be a little nerve-wracking to have a race looming on your schedule, but it doesn’t have to be!

Tap water contains many contaminants which are highly suggested to be filtered out before drinking, including the removal of fluoride. Fluoride is a dangerous byproduct of industrial synthetic toxic waste and has long been debated as unsuitable for human consumption. Yet many still believe this chemical to be beneficial to oral and dental health/hygiene.
In actuality, though there are (very minimal) benefits to dental and oral health/hygiene due to the use of fluoride, the risks far outweigh these benefits, threefold. Plus, these benefits only take effect when fluoride is used topically, not ingested via tap water and in all the many food products that hide trace amounts of fluoride behind it’s labels!
High acidity levels in the body may play a more important role in long-term health than most realize. Acid is consumed in a number of ways indicative of an unhealthy diet; via salts, fats, sugars, and carbohydrates. Many of our favorite foods are likely a contributor to levels of acid in the bodily system.
To counterbalance these high levels of acidity (such as when overeating junk foods), it’s recommended we maintain a healthy, optimal balance of both acid and alkaline. To lower levels of acid in the body, consume such foods as leafy greens, fruits, herbs, and other vegetables. Be sure to drink plenty of water as well. Thus, by maintaining a healthy level of both acids/alkaline, the body will run more efficiently, without side-effects.
