Lady Legacy

It is both awesome and frustrating that the women are doing so well at the Olympics. There seems to be a sense of surprise oftentimes from commentators that women are kicking so much ass at this level. Those of us involved in sport however, have known this all along. But let’s not knock it – […]

Dance Then Race

Ignore the annoying soundtrack that accompanies this video (not hard to figure out why all the boys are watching this), but we should all be having as much fun as this chick when we race.
