Here's the funny thing: This seemingly new fad is just the latest rendition of an 80-year-old idea.Recurring mania The whole concept of extracting nutrient-packed juice from fruits and veggies to keep us looking young and feeling healthy dates back, not to the early 2000s, but to the 1930s, when doctor and raw food proponent Norman Walker came up with the hydraulic Norman Juicing Press.(Childers exhales and inhales as if she is sucking in the last bit of oxygen on Earth.) If you follow her lead, Childers promises, this exercise will "lift and smooth out the skin"—an all-natural face-lift.The comments below the video on You Tube express some skepticism. Proponents of facial exercise have long been the butt of jokes.The race was fascinating to watch, like two prize fighters just throwing the good punches, waiting to see who would fall first. " I thought one time that Gelete might want to help with the lead, so I slowed down, but she was not to lead. I feel very good." noted a tired but recovering Flanagan.The platinum blonde you see here is Greer Childers, the 60-ish founder of the Body Flex workout.
On the men's 5000m side, Sam Stabler, a Brit from Lamar State, held off two separate charges over the last 400 meters. The women's 10,000 meters was probably the class event of the night.
Lately, though, smoothies are being passed over for the latest beverage craze — juices and juice fasts. Even the 70-year-old food critic for Vogue magazine, Jeffrey Steingarten, tried an eight-day cleanse to see whether it could help him recover from an intestinal bug. But is drinking freshly extracted juice really better for you than our old standby, the smoothie?
The idea is to drink nothing but juice extracted from fresh fruit and vegetable juice for several days to "cleanse" your digestive system and maybe drop a few pounds in the process. Writing about his experience in the May issue of the magazine, he admitted he thought about food "every few minutes — nearly all day." He also found it hard to focus, to write or to even stand up by the eighth day. The answer, as with everything else, is — it depends.
First, Andrew Rotich came up on his back, and Sam Stabler moved away, just as fans were saying outloud, "well, that is over." Stabler rana big PB of .50 with a very satisfying spirit, holding off also Jose Juan Esparza of Corre A. Shalane Flanagan was there to run a hard effort, tired, to simulate the last six miles of the marathon.
Shalane has a date with the marathon on April 20, as she will be running Boston once again.
