Athleta Announces Their 2011 Featured Athletes!

Adventurous. Soulful. Passionate. Fun!
 
Athleta is a brand that I am excited about. I love the fact that the clothes are functional, fun, and make me run faster!

This is why I am so excited that Athleta has included me to be a part of their 2011 Team of Featured Athletes!

Trouble Focusing? Feeling Blue? You Could be Overtraining

Too far too fast—overtraining and injury

Play it smart, and you stay healthy, make steady progress, and enjoy your exercise uninterrupted by injury and fatigue. Overdo things, and you risk a host of injuries, including shin splints, stress fractures, ankle sprains, knee and lower back pain, and foot pain.
