I think I’ve got sex on the brain. My husband – the other half of our couple who makes you want to puke – is in India for 2 weeks. So I certainly don’t have sex on the bed or the sofa or the kitchen counter right now. None at all.

Is “barefoot” running causing an epidemic of injuries? Or is running with incorrect form — whether barefoot or clod — to blame?
What happens when one man’s plans run smack into his wife’s (many) issues…and a small, red bird?
Guest blogger and cycling coach Rob Grissom shares his secrets to fitting training — or anything — into an over-packed schedule.
