Necklaces that Express Your FBG ‘Tude

One More Mile Necklace

Last fall, I had the opportunity to run in the Nike Women's Half Marathon in San Fransisco. It was amazing and, of all the races I've run, it's one that I look back on as extra special because not only was the scenery beautiful and I shaved two minutes off my previous half-marathon time, but I got …

Let's just get one thing straight: I was not scared when I got on the subway in New York City to visit the 57th street Complete Body & Spa on the Upper East Side.  I was not scared when I entered and filled out the necessary health paper work that prevents folks like you and me from sueing …

♪ FitHits: Christina Aguilera’s Bi-on-ic


Besides being the newbie on the block (in FBG years I'm a fit bottomed baby, Avery-like), I'm also the one who stands out like a sore thumb when it comes to my tastes in music. You see, I'm not really a pop lover. I may dabble in the bubble-gum genre from time to time, but I'm usually the chick …
