I'm swimming laps, following the 0 to 1650 program, and my swim cap always starts coming off around the 400-yard mark. I end up having to stop and fix it a lot. What could I be doing wrong? I don't know what I'm doing, please help [more inside]

I am looking for women's plus-sized (size 2X) cold-weather pants for walking my dog in the morning. I walk/run her for about 45 minutes (we are slowly doing Couch to 5K together). Specifically, I'd like to have something like these thermal running tights that are light, easy to pull on in the morning straight out of bed and will wick away moisture. Regular exercise and/or running tights aren't warm enough. Typical temps I walk in are down to 20F -- I'd like to be warm, but just not cold would be sufficient. I need them in a women's size 2X, but have had no luck finding anything. [more inside]

I am not currently "in-shape". In past months, I've been thinking that it would be pretty awesome to run a marathon. Think big, right? What do I need to go buy before I start? [more inside]
I'm wanting to do some outdoor bike training this winter, in preparation for going over the Rockies next summer. But, of course, riding in the winter isn't pleasant. The biggest problem I've run into is that my lungs start freezing when I get into a hard climb, while the rest of my body is overheating from the extra layers (essential for big downhills). Any tips on clothing choices that get the best of both worlds, or ways to keep my lungs warm?
