26 Apr: How Tech (and Attitude) Can Help You Run Your Best Race

Running is often a test of human will. Richard Tucker learned that on a recent 18-mile run as he trained for the Eugene Marathon in Eugene, Oregon.  

“One thing I underestimated was how mentally draining this is,” he said.

This is Richard’s first race, a bucket list item he’s determined to cross off. As race season starts, thousands of others will do the same.

To overcome mental blocks on long runs, Richard, a Best Buy Blue Shirt, turned to technology to help him cross the finish line.

15 Feb: Tech, Common Sense and Good Shoes Lead to Stronger Heart, Smaller Waistline

For Justin Durrant, even the little things were becoming a struggle. Tying his shoes. Getting the mail. Taking out the trash.

“I wanted to be around for my kids,” he says. “Genetics were playing against me, so I figured I’d take control of what I can.”

As we mark American Heart Month in February, stories like Justin’s serve as a reminder of how important it is to keep that ticker healthy.
