Fun facts on a Saturday

Popping in today for a fun little post.

Enjoy some random health, fitness and nutrition facts I’ve come across lately.


*I’m not sure how true this one is, but I’ve heard it several times.
Athletes dressed in red are more likely to win events than athletes wearing any other color.

Hicham El Guerrouj is the current men’s record holder in the mile with his time of 3:43.13, while Svetlana Masterkova has the women’s record of 4:12.56. Since 1976, the mile has been the only non-metric distance recognized by the IAAF for record purposes.

Breathing has very little to do with oxygen. Air has 21% oxygen and the body only needs 5%. It’s all about Carbon Dioxide.

Hope you enjoyed some randomness on this wonderful Saturday! I’m off to hit the treadmill, then head to Party City for last minute Super Bowl party items.

Check back with you all Monday!
