In an article on Runners World online, a Dr. Jordan Metzl was quoted as saying “I preach preparing your body by cross-training. Strength training, jumping, landing. I always say if you want to keep running, a strong butt is a key to a happy life.” Hmmm, a strong butt is key to a happy life? I knew there was a reason I started doing the buns & thighs pilates again! I’d put hugs from my kids, quality time with my husband, dessert of any kind (but preferably chocolate), and early morning running ahead of a strong butt as key to making my life happy. How about you?
