Fitness

I started running in the late nineties as a way to lose weight.  I've been hooked on endorphins every since and I need my daily fix.  I've learned that by taking an hour for myself to workout, I'm happy to give the rest of my time to my family and their needs.

New England weather can present challenges to runners and age can present more frequent injuries so I've learned to mix it up!  These days I do cardio/strength training three to five times a week, I take a spin class twice a week and run as often as I can.

Here's what I've got lined up for 2015 races...
