We’re living through the Big Bang in the ultra-running world; as more runners conquer the marathon, they’re trading up to ultras. Ultra-marathon finishes have increased a whopping 400% over the past five years.

SLO Op Climbing

Full week of films and activities through Oct. 7 celebrates the great outdoors.

Last year’s benefit screening of Banff Film Festival’s Radical Reels tour in San Luis Obispo was such a success for SLO Op Climbing that they decided to expand one night of films to a full week of films and activities celebrating people in the outdoors from Sept. 30 to Oct. 7.

A joint venture between All Out Events and SLO Op Climbing, both run by Kristin and Yishai Horowitz, the event comes at a time when people start to wrap up their summer adventures and start thinking about winter.

Making skate boarding history

Close your eyes and imagine a skateboarder. If the first image that came to mind was a 15 year-old with a scowl on his face sliding down the hand rails of a public stairway, it may be time to get a fresh perspective on the sport.
That’s just what you’ll receive from Jack Smith, founder of the Morro Bay Skateboard Museum and publisher of The Skateboarder’s Journal magazine. At 56 years old, the soft-spoken and down-to-earth Smith does not fit the stereotype of the skateboarder; in fact, his work is helping to change the stereotype.

Favorite back road bike rides in SLO County

Snorkeling in Hawaii, storm-chasing in Kansas, golfing at Pebble Beach… sometimes all the natural elements come together in one place to create a Five-Star experience.  That’s the state of bicycling in San Luis Obispo County.  The climate, terrain and community all fold together to make the central coast a delightful place to train and explore.  With coastal temperatures rarely varying more than 20 degrees off ideal, nearly every day is rideable, with vineyard, coastline and mountainous terrain to choose from.  Local cyclists were stumped when asked to narrow down their favorite routes to o

Margarita Adventures zipline canopy tours

Wine country adventure like no other

We usually think of zip lining as an adventurous activity that we might do when vacationing in Costa Rica, Ecuador, or even Northern California – not something that we can do in the middle of Wine Country. That all changed in September 2011 when owner Karl Whittstrom’s inspiration to create Margarita Adventures Zipline Canopy Tours on the Santa Margarita Ranch property became a reality.

What do you eat, Jeanne?

Although I eat healthy and am thin, my diet might not be the right one for you.  The way I eat won’t necessarily be the answer to a healthy body composition for you.  There are too many things to consider, before copying my diet.  Besides the fact that my cholesterol is about 120 mg/dl, my blood pressure hovers around 90/60 mm/Hg, and my body fat is about 17.4%, I have celiac disease (CD).  This column will explain what CD is and how it relates to me.  It was written not only to teach you about another aspect of health, but also to share with you my pursuit of a healthy lifestyle.

Benefits of fitness on overall health

“A healthy body is a guest-chamber for the soul; a sick body a prison.” – Francis Bacon

Like many of you, I feel we live in one of the most beautiful places in the world.  It’s relatively easy to enjoy the outdoors and be active year-round on the Central Coast.  I have also been lucky enough to work with an active group of people and have many active patients that inspire me to compete and push myself athletically.
