It’s that time again, friends: Time to fill next month’s calendar chock-full of events that will keep you movin’. Find our top picks for where to sweat — and a few events to chow down at — below.
Sure, winter running hasn’t been all that miserable this year, but that doesn’t mean that the opening of Incline Running, the first Philly-area boutique treadmill fitness studio — a trend that’s blown up in New York, thanks to the studio Mile High Run Club — isn’t something to cheer about.
While Philly does boast fitness studios that work treadmills into their signature workouts, like Unite Fitness and Ripped PHL, Incline Running is the first dedicated treadmill studio in the area, according to a press release. And we have to say, the boutique running spot, which opened its doors yesterday, looks like it serves up quite the experience.

If you’ve been at a loss for how to spend time with your significant other — off of the couch — during these cold months, we’ve got some date ideas that will get you movin’ (and score you thoughtfulness points). Feel free to take all the planning credit … we won’t tell.

We, with the help of some of our favorite Philly runners, have put together a list of 10 awesome spring races in Philly. Read through, pick a few to tackle, then get to training!
• Some — and by some, I mean my mother and my boyfriend — call me the Scrambled Egg Queen. But this title doesn’t come easy: I always cook scrambled eggs on low heat for what feels like forever to get them just right. Turns out adding cornstarch, though, can seriously cut that time, allowing for the texture of low-and-slow scrambled eggs in just a few seconds. Yes, please! [Self]
Ummmmmm, can we all just take a moment to appreciate the undeniable cuteness of this week’s adoptable running pup? His name is Slush Puppie (yes, with an i and an e), and he’s not yet a year old, so he’s new to the running game. That said, the Monster Milers are confident he’ll make for a great running partner once he grows up a little bit. Learn more about him below.
