The Weekly Burn: Keeping It Real

The Weekly Burn

Welcome to our first edition of The Weekly Burn. We spend a lot of time scouring the Internet to stay up on the hottest health and fitness trends, and each week, we’ll be sharing with you the best of what we read. (It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it!)

This first week is all about keeping it real — from an inspiring project to keep workouts fun to an elite runner sharing the same body insecurities as the rest of us.
