Photos & text by Morgan Sjogren, aka the @running_bum_ I should know better. Twenty miles into the Moab Trail Marathon (also the U.S. Trail Marathon Championships) I am greeted by the familiar aches and pains that are always guaranteed at races, where medals and podium finishes are not. My quads and knees ache from the pounding of fast paced downhill running and leaping off slickrock ledges, my hip flexors groan after pulling me up a 1,000 foot climb, and my feet have been tenderized like slabs of beef. Of course, none of these annoyances are injuries; they are just signs that my body is digging deep to get me to the finish line as fast as possible. While it’s a given...

Why Soy Candles? - Green Goo Introduces Aromatherapy Candles Made of Soy Wax

Check Out Our New Aromatherapy Soy Candles! “When it’s said that a candle scent ‘throws well,’ this means it fills the room with a strong, lasting scent. Soy wax candles not only have a great scent throw, but also have a cleaner smell. It’s been noted by many that paraffin wax will give them headaches.

How is it made? Well, its extracted from...
