milestone-pod-2

I've recently began running in a hope to have a slightly less round belly. I've come to find that footwear is an important component of running.

I don't know how I feel about having to charge the battery in my shoe insole, but hey, if it will keep my toes from going numb in the winter I may consider it.  This could be the motivation I need to get out of those wintertime blues and get some exercise outside!  These Bluetooth [...]

The Foot Hammock review

Screen Shot 2015-10-25 at 5.01.44 PM

The older I get, the more my kids must question my sanity.  Whether it's the organic diet that they just don't see the point of,  or the obsession I have with home automation, they are constantly wondering what I'm doing.
