Getting in shape after giving birth can be difficult; taking care of the baby takes a lot of time and leaves bodies weary and sapped of energy. Stroller Strides understands these common struggles and has designed exercise regimens with new mothers in mind. All you need to get started is you, your baby or someone else's baby, and a stroller. Classes, which are taught by specially trained instructors, take place outdoors most of the year and consist of a warm-up, a buggy-bandying power walk, and interval stations where participants do a variety of body-toning exercises. Musically enhanced indoor classes are also available if you'd rather spare your body and baby from winter's clammy clutches. Instructors provide everyone with any additional equipment and, in the event of a fussy-baby episode, will show you exercises you can do with your baby.
In 1884, when many of the western states of the United States were still being created and Jack the Ripper was at large in London, the founders of The Evening Capital decided to bring stories from the world to residents of Annapolis, Anne Arundel County, and Kent Island. With a reputation established over the course of more than a century, the paper, now known as The Capital, focuses on local and regional news but still brims with the same world news as well as pieces on sports and entertainment. Subscribers find recipes and information about local events in the lifestyle section after grabbing the paper from the lawn or downloading the digital edition from the Internet. In the paper?s opinion section, readers share their points of view with the world, discuss issues relevant to their communities, and suggest comical things for Marmaduke to bury.
When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. Adele Fridman, founder of MetaBody, created a real-life version of that ticket with her MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.
In one of the nation's most storied rivalries spanning more than a century, the Navy Midshipmen and the Army Black Knights have met on courts, fields, mats, and tracks and in pools more than 1,700 times. Though the fierce rivalry will always take priority among students, fan bases, media, and aliens debating whether to invade America by land or by sea, the Midshipmen have excelled against other competition, as well. The Naval Academy boasts NCAA Division II championships in women’s indoor track and women’s swimming, as well as 40 NCAA Division I individual championships, including 10 fencing champions, nine men’s gymnastics champions, and eight men’s swimming champions.

Holding up port in the Annapolis City Marina for more than 25 years, Carrol's Creek serves up finely grilled steaks and fresh local seafood with a lively dockside view of the Spa Creek harbor. The lunch menu presents a star line-up of aquatic delicacies such as a glamorous herb-encrusted rockfish fillet roasted with sautéed baby spinach, lovely lady jumbo crab lumps, and a tomato pesto risotto ($18), or a fried oyster po' boy sandwich made of pearl-less mollusks fried fresh and served on a roll with horseradish aioli ($11.50). Dinner allows a repeat performance of lunchtime favorites mixed with new appetizers such as Acapulco-style ceviche, which combines tilapia with onions, tomatoes, avocado, and fresh cilantro ($9), and caesar salad for two, made tableside so diners can witness the ritualistic slaughter of romaine hearts before devouring them with special dressing and freshly grated imported cheese ($15). Maryland jumbo crab-cakes are bursting with garlic-and-herb potatoes ($30), and a grilled filet mignon comes slathered with caramelized sweet onions, wild mushrooms, and a merlot glace to satisfy the largest land-loving appetites ($29).
