4 Ways to Burn Off a Slice of Pie
By JESS BARRON
March 14 (3.14) is Pi Day, and you don't have to be a mathematician to celebrate. A delicious, yummy pie (get it? Pi/pie?) is the perfect way to mark the day — for all you non-math types out there, pi is the symbol that represents “the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.”
We recommend baking a pie, throwing a Pi Party and/or simply enjoying a slice ... and then working it off with one of the four workouts below.
Here’s a great pie recipe to get you started:

2. Run approximately 38 minutes at a 10-minute mile pace.
3. Use a rowing machine for 38 minutes.
4. Do the 31-minute STRONGER Explosion workout video.
Enjoy Pi Day! You know I will be eating some Paleo Pumpkin Pie or maybe Strawberry-Rhubarb pie…
