The supplement industry is a multi-billion dollar business. Everyone wants that edge in beauty, health, longevity, and for some, athletic performance. Have you ever thought about what it would be like to be able to not only stay with the pack but to attack the peloton and obtain a podium finish.

Thus we ended up with two tickets to Miami flying out on Thanksgiving Day in the morning and coming back on Friday the following week. The idea was to get some beach time on the Florida Keys, I figured we’d rent a car like every normal couple would do and explore the Keys from behind the windshield.
The Arches Cruise is a 46-mile out-and-back ride over rolling hills in Arches National Park, including a couple of out-and-back spurs. The stunning scenery—exotic enough for an Indiana Jones film (opening sequences in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade)—makes this a must-do ride.
I used to hate to ride Prospector to Church Rocks. I found nothing interesting about the trail. It was slow, sluggish and made me tired without giving anything back.
