I went out to support the Local Threads Fashion Show at Founder’s. The clothes were beautiful and they helped support the Kids Food Basket.

What: “LOCAL THREADS FASHION SHOW” a benefit event for KIDS FOOD BASKET.
Where: Founders Brewing Company (235 Grandville SW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503)
When: September 20th, 2009 8pm

The Second Annual Local Threads Fashion Show will be held Sunday September 20th, 2009 at 8pm, at Founders Brewing Company on Grandville Avenue in Grand Rapids.

The event will feature lines made by such local designers as Lynn Anne Serulla, Khristi Menardie Yokum of Bliss Clothing, The GR8, Coat of Many Colors, Nate Dorotiak, and biking gear from the new Commute Bike Shop on Division Avenue. Echo Salon will feature their talents by styling the hair of the models. Event organizer and designer Lynn Anne Serulla offers the event as “a great way for people to network with others, also to keep Grand Rapids looking fresh in the latest gear from local talent. But it’s the guests that make it what it is.”

This year, Local Threads will be donating it’s proceeds to Grand Rapids own Kids Food Basket. Since there is no government sponsored program available, Kids Food Basket was created to combat the childhood food insecurity problem in Grand Rapids. This organization provides a healthy sack supper to approximately 1,346 elementary school children at 13 schools. These children have been identified by school officials as being nutritionally at-risk and would not otherwise be receiving an evening meal. The bagged supper in addition to the federal school food program puts the children at the daily-recommended requirement. Children who receive the appropriate daily requirement of nutrition have better attendance, grow stronger, and have improved grades at school.

The event will be per person, and will offer up sounds by DJ Spydre Murphy.

Which is better for toning your legs and tummy, walking or running?

Question by I ♥ Penguins: Which is better for toning your legs and tummy, walking or running?
I’ve read several fitness articles that say walking is better for toning, and running is better for building up leg muscles…is that really true?
I usually run around 1/2 an hour a day, and on average I walk over an hour a day, I was just wondering which one is better for toning.

Best answer:

Answer by Jess the Mess
I prefer running for both. I don’t know why… I never feel like walking achieves much. Running is great as a cardiovascular for burning body fat. But which ever one you do it is better than sitting on the couch! ;D

What pilates move or exercises would make your body (legs) more flexible?

Question by zesty_tang: What pilates move or exercises would make your body (legs) more flexible?
What pilates move or exercises would make your body (legs)more flexible? I need better flexibility in my legs (especially the ham strings), as I feel i cannot keep my legs straight when they are up in the air when I am lying on my back…
Silicon Valley girl: it looks like a great reference website, thanks!

Answer by SiliconValleyGirl
Are you stretching before or after exercise? This is of great importance as you should never stretch a cold muscle. You risk injury by asking a muscle to lengthen and elongate when it’s not prepared to.

I am a Yoga instructor so I can give you some similar tips on how to work on the flexibility of your hamstrings as this is definitely an issue for many. First, of course, do your stretches either after exercise or warm up beforehand. The warmer you are the better you will be able to tolerate the stretch. Here are a couple of options you can try:

1. You can do the same movement (of lying on your back with your legs in the air) standing up. You can do a forward fold, relaxing your head and neck, letting your arms dangle down towards the floor and concentrating on your breathing. Inhale first and then exhale as you’re folding forward, going as far as you can go. Then hold it there. Take another inhale and as you exhale try and relax the legs even more, going deeper into the stretch as you can. Do this for about 4-5 minutes if you have time…each time relaxing as you exhale. Relaxing your legs keeps the tension out and lets your muscles stretch. When you are nervous and tense your hamstrings will not want to budge. Deep breathing helps calm you down and ease yourself into it.

2. Use yoga/pilates straps (or even a towel if you want). Sitting on the floor with your legs in front of you, wrap the towel around your feet and hold each end of the towel with your hands. Inhale first, then as you exhale hold on to the towel and ‘pull’ your upper body towards your thighs. Go slowly, inching yourself down a little at a time, using your breath to relax your muscles so you can do down a little more each time. When you get as far as you can go, hold it and continue breathing for a minute or two and slowly release out of the stretch. NEVER force yourself to go farther than your body will let you.

Here is an example of #2: http://yogajournal.com/poses/476_1.cfm

Another pose that is a wonderful for stretching the hamstrings (and the back!) is Downward Dog. It’s more detailed in the instructions so I’ll let you read more about it if you’re interested: http://yogajournal.com/poses/491_1.cfm

Note that gaining flexibility takes time and patience. As long as you respect your body and its limitations (along with its abilities) you give it space to change and grow.
