Warming up before you exercise is the most important part of training, according to platinum sponsor Twin Cities Orthopedics. In their blog, "Warm up to perform, cool down to recover," TCO offers helpful tips on proper warmups and cooldowns. Be sure to prioritize both for successful training.

With school out for the summer, we asked Carrie, our national fitness director, about some tips on how to include the family into a running routine. Here's what she had to say:
Q: What are some tips and tricks for running when kids are on summer break?
A: I think the tip is to get up early and get it done before everyone is out of bed or, have them ride with you. Some people will even try find a public track that allows public access and bring some sand toys for the sand pit. Run there, do some faster paced intervals, and run home. Super fun for everyone involved!

Running for me has been my life saver, my solitude, my first love, my sanity. Yes there are days I have a love/hate relationship with it, but at the end of the day, it always makes me feel better, gives me confidence and energy, and makes me a better wife and mom. And the best part? I always enjoy my meal after (have I told you I love to eat?) and that to me makes everything worth it!
