Steps To Get You Running - Components When Buying A Treadmill

What components make up a treadmill? Treadmills are designed with basic components like motors, belts, decks, flywheels, frames, rollers, electronics and display consoles. Let us briefly go through each of these components.Motors:The motor is considered to be one of the most important components of a treadmill. The treadmill works mainly with the help of the motor. Motorized treadmills have one motor that drives the belt and another lift motor to power the incline. The motor delivers power to the belt system through the rollers. The power of the motor is measured in horsepower (hp) and ranges from 1.0 to 4.0 hp. A large, powerful motor will extend your treadmills life and help it to operate at a continuous rate.

Great Gifts For Runners

Every runner loves getting new running related gifts and gadgets. Whether you are making out your gift list - or have a runner on yours - here is my list of great gifts for runners.iPod Shuffle - There are different models of iPods out there - but I think that for runners the iPod shuffle is the best. It's small and you hardly know it's there when you're out on a run. And, that's extremely important to me. I had never wanted an iPod, but several years ago, my husband bought me one for Christmas. Well, it turned out to be perfect. I hate anything bulky when I run - and he knew this. The Shuffle is perfect! You don't have the capacity of other iPods - but I'll gladly give up a few songs for the compactness of the Shuffle.Forerunner GPS Watch - All runners need a good watch. And, if you are looking for a GPS watch, the Garmin Forerunner in the one you want to look at. I love the ease of using this watch. The distance and time feature is super easy to read on the run. The larger face and numbers is also great for...

Running Tips - Washing Your Running Caps

I wear a cap every time that I go for a run - no matter what time of day it is or what the weather is. I have several and alternate them like I do my shoes. However, after so long - they do get a little stained. So, the question comes up on how to wash your running caps. Here are a few ideas to keep them clean.Many runners wash their caps by hand. You can fill a sink - or a bucket of water with dish soap to wash it with. If it has severe stains, you can use a soft brush or toothbrush to wash. I have also heard of runners that will put their running caps in the dishwasher. There's a plastic piece that you can buy that you put the caps on that will hold their shape.

How To Negotiate The Dangerous Ground Of Teenage Fashions With Your Teen

If you are the parent of a teenager you are already painfully aware of their need to be on top of the latest fashions and fads. It is like a competition with them on who has the latest fashion apparel and who does not. At the same time, it is our job as parents to be sure that this doesn't go too far, especially in light of the fads that are out today. We have all seen the boys fashions that have them wearing pants that are way too big and showing their boxers and with girls we see tight low cut tops that are so short that their belly buttons show. In my opinion these are totally inappropriate for young teens and I see girls as young as 12 dressed this way.If you are like me your first thought will probably be to get upset and say something like, "The only way you are wearing that is over my dead body", of course it is totally your right to do so but you may end up causing a rift between you and your teen. If you take a moment to think back to what it was like when you were a teen you will probably remember t...
