The Argument for Building a Base For Running (Now)

It doesn’t take a genius to know that we are in the middle of a pandemic.  Lives lost, businesses closed, and livelihoods broken—sports and racing fall in the least of priorities with that.

So? So, many fall races have already been canceled. While there are still many big fall races that haven’t been canceled…it’s more or less, “they haven’t been canceled yet.”

The Benefits of Apricots

One of my favorite fruits is apricots. From snacking on dried apricots to eating them raw, I’ve been enjoying them for years.

There is a single pit and they are often slightly crunchy. Dried apricots are fruity and slightly gummy.
