We are lucky to have so many families participating in our community every year. We've been talking with a few of those family-oriented participants lately, and it got us thinking that when it comes to fitness, family isn't just the people you're related to. Sure, your blood relatives can make an amazing team, but our participants form virtual families around all kinds of ties.

Running On Air

Posted by Mary Kitlowski on Nov 3, 2017 10:22:01 AM

We’ve all heard about how important exercise is and how sitting is the new smoking. Most of us step out our doors to go for a run or a hike or go to the gym for our workouts. What about those for whom exercise is not so easy?
