What Did We Learn This Month?

Recaps of Bicycling, FitnessRX for Women and Muscle & Fitness Hers

 Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

There is a crispness in the air that says “Hey Honey, how about a little autumn for ya?” Love it! Every year at this time I feel some sadness about summer leaving us all behind and then I remember that Septmeber is one of the raddest months of the year. You can still walk around without a jacket most of the time and yummy foods like pumpkin and acorn squash come into season. What’s not to love about it?

Anyhoo—I have a batch of new magazines to recap today so let us get to it now, shall we?

Bicycling: October 2013

  • “Powered by Plants” As a primal/Paleo eater I know I am the natural enemy of vegans everywhere so wanting to demonstrate that I can listen to the other side and consider what those veggie heads consume every day instead of animal products. Not sold on “fortified breakfast cereals” however.
  • “Go Back in Time” Super-tweedy rides are popping all over the country this time of the year and I for one applaud that. Go you chic bike riders!
  • “While You Were Out Riding, Bike Advocacy Became Cool” “Eight Innovators” who are helping cycling be more safe (and cool.) Yay them!
  • “’Cross Wise” Super cute gear for your next cyclocross race.
  • “10-Minute Bone-Boosting Workout” Really great core moves from exercise physiologist Allison Westfahl.
