Disc Golf Course Proposed For Paso Robles

Sponsored by Michael Gill Cellars - Outstanding Paso Robles Syrah

A group of disc golf players are proposing to build new course on the east side of town on 60-acres of open land between Highway 46 and Kleck Road.

Disc golf is played like traditional golf, but instead of a ball and clubs, players use a flying disk or Frisbee and a metal basket called a pole hole.

Marathon-ing in New Orleans

Five friends find an excuse to race at NOLA.

It all started with a bucket list,  five girlfriends, running shoes and a plane ticket to New Orleans. Five women, but all sharing the singular goal of supporting one amazing friend. Heidi Wicka had decided that she would run but a single marathon in her lifetime, thus it best be someplace memorable. So when she told us that she had selected New Orleans as THE marathon, how could we not go to support her? Right? New Orleans, AKA NOLA, with Bourbon Street, great food, incredible history, and music that people live a lifetime to hear.

Local produce company SLO Veg brings the bounty to the table

Food is an extremely intimate subject; it provides comfort just as much as it provides energy for living. What you eat matters to your health, and there can hardly be a more satisfying feeling than picking a fruit from a tree, or pulling a vegetable up from the chocolate-brown soil, dusting it off, and taking a bite – but just a small taste! – one, first tiny little nibble, and letting nature’s nectars delight my taste buds. It’s important not to overwhelm your tasters with an enthusiastic chomp. Take a small bite, chew slowly and gently, and feel the food.

Stand up straight!

Proper posture is essential in life and exercise

Posture during exercise will greatly affect not only your endurance, but other aspects of your life as well. Poor posture pits your own muscles and physiology against yourself – you fight your own body!

Run Paso for a Cause

Run Paso is a women’s running group that was founded in 2010. The group of friends began meeting at a different location each Sunday, and the word quickly spread spread. In the past two years, the group has grown and the women in it have started training together for 5k, half, and full marathons.
 
Together, the group trains for and travels to races throughout the state. “It is so fun to have something to train for,” says member Michelle Thacher, “We make a weekend of the races, get hotel rooms, and go out to dinner.”
