Helping Each Other Out

fashioncurves a.k.a Lisa recently posted this message to our Forum boards: "Need a work out partner."

Slower than a Snail, Riding on a Turtle

While Tony's away (and likely running on a beautiful beach somewhere along the West Coast), check out what our guest blogger, Mamie's, up to back in the Midwest. We have a feeling if you're not already running, you're going to want to join the race after reading what's on her mind.  more

What Does Multiculturalism Mean to You?

Multiculturalism might look different depending on what city you live in, where you go to school, or where you work. Regardless of how we describe multiculturalism, our communities across the nation are, thankfully, made up of people with diverse backgrounds and perspectives. more
