Miami Open not moving from its home, leaders of tennis tournament say

Despite speculation that the Miami Open, now in its 33rd year, will leave Key Biscayne’s Crandon Park Tennis Center because of legal limitations that prevent the tournament from expanding, tournament officials insist it’s here to stay.

A shoe to fit all your outdoor needs

Trail running shoes are all about protection. You want a stable platform for uneven surfaces, a rugged outsole to keep your footing, and a hardy upper that won't be ripped apart when snagged by vegetation on the trail. The Merrell Agility Peak Flex has all of these elements - plus a wide range of motion to help mimic the more minimalist style of running shoes that have become popular. That's not to say the Agility Peak Flex is a minimalist shoe - it certainly isn't, as it features a good bit of midsole foam, rock plates in the heel and forefoot and a molded heel counter for additional support.

Wina Sturgeon: Properly wax your skis and snowboards for optimal spring riding

Now comes the best part of the ski and snowboard season: spring skiing. It's that brief period where snow is still crystallized and has not yet turned to mashed potatoes.

Spring snow gives extra support to a carving edge, which makes it a great time for novice snowriders to become accomplished intermediates and more.

Wina Sturgeon: When is the last time you changed your workout?

One fact many athletes or weekend warriors don't know is how quickly the human body adapts. If you've been doing the same workout for months, it is no longer helping you develop. Doing the same workout over and over again is futile, because your body adapts while progress and further development stops.

To run with headphones safely outside try Aftershokz

Lots of people love listening to music while running. But that does create a danger - particularly in urban environments - since runners are less aware of what's going on around them. That changes with the Aftershokz Trekz Titanium headphones, which actually deliver the music through your cheekbones and leave your ears open to hear other ambient noises on the run. Yes, while it sounds odd, these cordless headphones wrap around your head and sit just outside of the ear. You hear the music through a process called bone conduction.
