    Week FOUR: What to Eat Before and After a Workout

    Running a 5K race doesn't require months of training or a perfect nutritional plan.

    Pairing 1

    Before: Whole Wheat Toast with Sliced Banana, Peanut Butter, and Cinnamon 

    After: Grilled Chicken and Mixed Vegetables

  • Sarah Thomas Makes NFL History As League's First Female Official

    04.06.2015 / Blog Posts

    Brought to you by SB Nation 

    Sarah Thomas, a Mississippi native who Wilson said has been a finalist for an NFL position previously, has officiated Conference USA games in the NCAA for nearly a decade. She has also officiated during NFL camps and the preseason previously.

    A technicality would keep Thomas from being the first woman to ever officiate an NFL game though. That honor belongs to Shannon Eastin, who was on the field working when replacement officials were brought in by the league during a referee lockout in 2012. Thomas, however, would be the first female to be hired ... Read More

  • Fatima Saleem Still Hopes To Use Sports To Empower Pakistani Girls

    03.30.2015 / Blog Posts Community

     Seen on espnW by Nicole Blades

    Throughout her life in Pakistan, Fatima Saleem has seen how ongoing war can affect the mindset of a nation. The most recent example also hit closest to home, when terrorists attacked a school in Peshawar in December. Seven gunmen associated with the Taliban stormed a military-run school in northwestern Pakistan and opened fire, killing 150 people, most of them schoolchildren.
