Forty minutes a day isn’t actually a lot of time- that is, unless you’re on a run.

Then I remember slamming facedown onto the track. In the milliseconds it took me to realize I was, in fact, lying on the track as the rest of the runners ran around me, all I could think was: I have to get up and race now.

February 2, 2016- Brighten Up Your Lunch

An apple a day keeps the doctor away…but some fruits and veggies will still make the doctor pretty happy. It’s easy to run out of time before school, and yes, a pack of Oreos, chips and a sandwich make for a quick lunch when you’re running out the door. However, fruit and vegetables provide essential vitamins… READ MORE

January 26, 2016- Start Your Day with Quick, Easy Breakfast Ideas

Breakfast. It is considered the most important meal of the day by nearly everyone, but for busy high schoolers, it can be overlooked. While it can be tempting to skip breakfast entirely when you’re running low on time… READ MORE
