Running Tips Blog lets you know whenever any new or changed web pages appear on Best- It lets you know about great deals I find on the net for you and points out some of my special pages that you might otherwise miss.

It even lets you know when I send out the Best-Running-Tips Newsletter. Very good in case you'd like this special e-zine, but don't like to give your e-mail address, or if your ISP tends to over-filter causing you to lose mail.

To subscribe to my blog (no e-mail necessary), right-click on the orange RSS button (see buttons on the left hand side below the nav bar) and then paste the URL into your RSS reader.
Or click on the My Yahoo! button or My MSN button if you prefer to read my blog updates there.

If you are not sure what RSS and blogging is all about, click on the "What's an RSS Feed?" link (also left margin). Once you start, you will be amazed at what RSS can do.

Enjoy... this is fun!

"Achieve" - Lose Weight on Your Own Terms

AchieveOK, now, I have got some exciting news for you.

I have just completed my weight loss ebook. It's called "Achieve".

One of the big problems I have seen with people who are trying to lose weight is that they get "stuffed around" by the weight loss industry.

Do this diet. Take this pill. Swallow this powder. Etc.

But what you really need to start taking control of your weight loss is a well thought out plan. A plan you help create yourself. A plan you commit to.

That's what Achieve helps you to.. ahem... achieve... :)

This book has just become available on the market.

So, as an introduction offer, the price for the book is now $10,- for the next three days only.

That's ten bucks that can change your life forever.

To get the discount, simply use discount code "BLOG" in the checkout.

Oh, and did I tell you "Achieve" comes with a 365 day "No weight loss - money back" guarantee? Yes, it does. So, you really don't have anything to lose here. Well, except for your weight, that is... :)

Here's to your weight loss success!

Low on Energy - Bee Pollen Could Bee The Answer

I quite often get a mid-afternoon slump, especially if I have been out for a morning or lunchtime run.

My remedy? Well first of all, of course, I try to make sure I sleep well and eat well. But sometimes that isn't quite enough.

Sometimes I need that little bit extra. For example, when I am training for a marathon.

When I am stepping up my training to higher mileage or more intensity.

I have found that for those times bee pollen can help give me the kick I need.

When you have periods in life in which you have low energy and you need a little bit of an extra boost, bee pollen could bee all you need. Bee smart and give it a try... :)
