5 Unusual Ways of Losing Weight that Don’t Cost Anything

So I recently bought a new book that is by the legendary Tim Ferriss. You may know him from the 4 hour work week and 4 hour body.
I’ve had the 4 hour body in my possession for a long time (even got the early bird autographed version). But I finally was able to read a large section of it and a lot of the items were about weight loss and he had a few tips.

Nike Run Club Sydney and Pat Farmer

Ralph and PatI’ve written a few articles about Pat Farmer here on the MyRun website but I just can’t help writing another one about this amazing legend.
You may have seen him on the news quite a bit during his 24,000 km run from the North to the South Pole to raise money for the Red Cross

Well he was in Sydney this Monday (the 26th of Nov) at the Nike Run Club to run along with the crowd.

He gave a speech before the run telling us that he felt it was great to have everybody here and we are all being active and just putting in the work to make a change. It was such a nice speech and I felt that everybody enjoyed him to be there.
