    Review: Sharkmouth Tactical MOLLE Hydration Pack Backpack 900D

    The biggest problem I have when doing cardio is being thirsty. REALLY thirsty. I tried running without my water bottles. That was a NIGHTMARE. Big no, no. So I bought a running belt. (Think fanny pack with water bottles) I like it. It’s great for short runs because it doesn’t hold as much water. Enter

    Home Workouts To Do

    The gyms are still closed. It’s going on 3 months. Our area is moving to “Green” phase next month. Meaning our government overlords are allowing gyms to open at 50% capacity. Oh. Only 50% capacity? Which means that there will be people turned away at the doors. Hmm. That’s a problem. What’s a gal to
