Eschewing traditional race rules and methods, Dirty Dashers must overcome a slew of mud-slicked obstacles, including mucky climbing hills, crawling pipes, slip 'n slides, and bear hugs from Pigpen. Organizers encourage runners to sign up with friends to foster a fun-loving environment, and along the way, racers fuel up at optional beer- or root-beer-chugging stations. Further demonstrating its commitment to outdoor high jinks, each event's registration fees, donations, water-balloon sales, and shoe donations benefit local charities, such as NM[X]—an arts and athletics youth organization—and the Seattle-based Redeeming Soles charity, which dispenses gently used footwear to those in need.

Chronic pain in her neck and lower back brought Melanie St. Georges into her first yoga class. She walked in stressed, tired, and afraid to fail. Despite that fear, she dove into her first class, and as she continued to practice daily, not only did she find herself pain-free, but she felt much more relaxed and balanced.
Today, Melanie leads her own team of dedicated instructors in the hopes of making yoga accessible so that others may discover its healing powers. Utilizing the Barkan Method of hot yoga—a variant of Hatha yoga—their classes aim to strengthen and stretch the entire muscular system while relieving mental stress. Heated air helps the body flush out toxins while deepening stretches and staving off injuries caused by a recent move into Aladdin’s lamp. When they’re not teaching yoga, instructors help clients boost their core strength with Pilates sessions that take place in a moderately heated environment. Blissful Spirits also offers daily donation-based daycare services during select hours.

Lots of kids start their own lawn-mowing business to earn extra cash. For 12-year-old Ryan Fellows, every neighbor's yard he cut put him closer to buying a shotgun so he could go hunting with his cousins, uncles, and grandfather. As the outdoorsy young man continued hunting, he also dabbled in competitive rifle shooting with his high school's JROTC team. Combining his advanced marksmanship skills with his love of martial arts, Ryan went on to earn multiple training certifications—awarded from institutions such as the state, NRA, and Glock—and applied them toward his own training business, as well as his post of director of US operations for SAFE International.

Touting more than 80 flavors of low-calorie, flavor-packed frozen yogurt, Tutti Frutti earned a feature on CNBC and has continued to expand since opening its first shop in 2007. Inside each store, self-service yogurt machines unleash velvety-soft yogurt into accommodating cups or empty purses. Their constantly rotating flavors include royal red velvet, pomegranate, or choco-peanut-butter. Most flavors fall within the range of 20–25 calories per ounce, with dairy-free options and no-sugar-added concoctions also available. A toppings bar allows eaters to further customize yogurt creations with a spoonful of fresh fruits or a sprinkling of nuts. Their flavors contain ample amounts of probiotics, known for potential health benefits that may include strengthening immune systems and lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. Organic probiotic yogurt for dogs is available in four flavors. In addition, Tutti Frutti offers a selection of soy-based yogurts as a non-dairy choice for vegans and partners with Nutrition & Education International to donate 10% of soy-product proceeds to help fight hunger in Afghanistan.
