Thinking about relocating to a new city? If you are into outdoorsy activities in your city, there are some places that don’t cut it, according to this list.

Here is a list of tips for people running their first marathon.

Do you have a list of excuses keeping you from getting out there, or how well you “perform?” This writer wants to have a word with you.
