Confessions of a Foodie in Europe

November 1, 2013 By: Vanessa Craddock

I was a woman on a mission, and with any mission, you show up prepared.  You wouldn’t go to a gun fight without a gun, throw a pool party without a pool, or vacation in Paris without fine dining.  Not if you are me.  So, I needed a plan. The internet had plenty of websites…

April 28, 2010 By: Ron "Commish" Swanson

It’s been an interesting couple of weeks inasmuch as I have been unable to get to Brick Bodies very often because life has gotten in the way. At least three, sometimes four, and occasionally five times a week, I was able to get to the gym and then suddenly I was getting there only once…
