Researchers find that adding two minutes of light exercise to each hour of your day lowers your risk of dying prematurely by 33 percent. It’s the latest research to show how important simply walking can be for your health. This is good news people! We’ve heard about the positive benefits of walking for years, and while I see many people push it REALLY HARD at the gym, I’ve always been a more of a moderate pusher at the gym. All I know is, in a world where we’re told not to eat dairy, carbs, gluten, sugar, and other, I would die if I couldn’t have my morning coffee, my glass of wine every couple of days, my garlic mashed potatoes, or my cheese (I’m a confessed cheeseaholic). As I said in my Turning 40 blog post, “I’ve learned that I have a love affair with music and food.

So due to some unfortunate circumstances, our friend Catherine (Her Bad Mother) was unable to run the Disney Princess Half Marathon, a race she was running in honor of her nephew Tanner who is battling Muscular Dystrophy.

Tutus for Tanner

Even though we’ve never met him, Tanner (and his family) has a special place in many of our hearts, and so we wanted to do something special to help lift Catherine’s spirits and honor Tanner in the way she wanted to this past weekend. So, along with fellow Shredhead Kari Dahlen, I came up with the idea “Tutus for Tanner.” It’s really quite simple. If you’re planning on running a race this year (5K, 10K, Half Marathon, Marathon, or whatever other distances exist), then agree to wear a tutu when you do, in honor of Tanner. Yes, you might look a little silly, but some might say running just for the heck of it is a little silly. And if you don’t have a race yet, just email us whenever you sign up for one. So hooray for tutus. Shredheads. Eat. Blog. Run.
