These Running Websites Can Help You Get Active

July 30, 2014 9:02 am

From inspirational quotes to training tips, the internet provides a wide variety of ways to improve your running routine. Though you can only really run at the gym or on the trail, many runners seek inspiration on the web for the days when they just don’t feel like getting off of the couch. Here are some beneficial websites for runners of all skill levels.

Search “running quotes” on Pinterest and you’ll instantly be met with thousands of motivational quotes gathered by fellow runners. If you’re already on Pinterest, creating your own board to pin the quotes and workouts that inspire you most can be very helpful when you need that extra boost to lace up your sneakers.

If competitive running is more your speed, the running section of the Competitor website is just the thing to fuel your sportsmanlike spirit. The homepage provides the latest headlines from races around the world, as well as training tips to help you prepare for your next big race. You’ll also find tips for injury prevention, trail running, shoes, and gear and much more.

Running Times
Just as the name suggests, Running Times is like an online newspaper for running enthusiasts. The Headlines page includes news headlines about competitive running, with different sections for high school, college, and masters running. Trail and training tips will help you to get in the best shape possible, while the Trails We Love page offers helpful insight into the best trails in your area.

Rocco’s Ristorante & Pizzeria: Walnut Creek Italian Cuisine

July 23, 2014 11:45 am

Rocco Biale learned to love great Italian cuisine at an early age. He comes from a family of restauteurs: his grandfather once operated a butcher shop in San Francisco, and other relatives established restaurants in spots including Waikiki. Lucky for residents of Walnut Creek, Rocco decided to bring his talents to the Bay Area. Today, Rocco's Ristorante & Pizzeria pays homage to a tradition of good food by serving classic Italian cuisine in a friendly ambiance.

The eatery may be known best for its pizzas (although it also serves pasta, sandwiches, and salads), and patrons highly recommend the signature Dominator pie. According to Rocco's menu, it's named for Rocco's own son and serves as the house specialty. This fully loaded pie comes topped with pepperoni, salami, ham, sausage, linguica, mushrooms, and onions, so it's not for the faint of heart or appetite.
