Expression through Running


“Living in New England, exercising outside during the Fall is one of my favorite things to do.  I don’t love the rolling hills but I do love the smell and beautiful colors of the falling leaves. I’ve been running and biking for more than twenty years. For me, this time is a moving meditation […]
