ACTIVE.COM FATHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE: For the active Dad, whether he is a a runner, hiker, cyclist, walker, rucker, sportsfan, or outdoorsman. I liked this list because it is a big one with many novel suggestions. Prices are supplied as well as links if you wish to “buy now”! Many may be available at local stores if you would rather buy something in person and take it home for wrapping. You can get some good ideas and shop for something similar that can be returned easily if it's not just right. One thing is for sure, someone at Active.com sure likes to shop Eddie Bauer!

If you STILL WANT to give dad a tie (article by Scott Brown):
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
