Winter Running Joy

Winter Running Joy. It sounds like a little bit of an oxymoron with the difficult challenges that winter presents: cold, snow, ice, sleet, wind, dark days, the lack of sunlight, and even just gray skies instead of blue. It’s easy to succumb to the strong...

As the Mill Spins

As the mill spins…whether the rapidly rotating windmill outdoors or more mundane treadmill indoors…each year spins so quickly and we have the opportunity to pause, reflect, and remember what we learned. What a fun and memorable year this has been: filled...

#AsthmaChat: Health and Flu
