I’ve always known that most cyclists are funny people. Some are actually humorous, while most are funny in the eccentric sense. But how many comedians are cyclists? As it turns out, at least four of them, and we lured them into the WJCU studios this week for an interview. Laugh Strong: Tour de Comedy is Adam Sokol, Christian Polanco, Dean Masello, and Max Boyajian, and they have biked 500 miles from Cincinnati to Cleveland, performing standup comedy in several cities along the way. They perform their final show on this tour at 8:00 p.m. tonight at SB Eighty One in the Cleveland suburb of Westlake, Ohio. 440-835-3559 for more information.
From the humorous to the more serious, Kristina Pinto joins us in the second half to talk about the book Fit & Healthy Pregnancy, which she co-authored with Rachel Kramer, MD. As you might gather by the title, the book is a resource for pregnant women on what to do (and not do) as far as fitness and exercise throughout pregnancy and immediately after childbirth. Rule #1 is no core exercises while lying on your back (such as situps). Now I ask you: even if you’re not pregnant (or not even a woman) why take chances?
