Perfect Post-Workout Treat: Protein + Cookie...


By Bethany Mavis (tiathlete.com)


Give yourself a protein boost by trying any of these protein cookies—each of which are editor tested (you’re welcome).

A post-workout cookie isn’t a bad nutritional choice, as long as it’s packed with protein (like these baked treats) and carbs.

Dear Me...


ED. Kristina Swenson is a remarkable young woman. She's smart, caring and a terrific athlete (former Minnesota Junior of te Year, Most Improved nominee etc.)

She's also a talented writer.

There were tough decisions. But it was also SO SO good. There were great memories. There were smart choices. There was a lot of wisdom gained. I am so proud of the woman you've become. You're stronger. You're healthier. You're happier. And you have a whole lot more love to give. So looking back, what do I want you to remember about this year? ....

Today we are giving imaginary gift cards. 


JAN GUENTHER (18 x MMA winner; 2 x Ironman Wisconsin winner) - We want her to have a $5000 "Sleep Number" gift card. We visited one of their stores not long ago and were very impressed.
