07 Mar 2012 / in Uncategorized

You can run away from your problems — literally.  My brother, Robert, is living proof of that.  This past weekend he ran his first 1/2 marathon.  He ran it in an impressive 2:02!  He trained for the race, but only really has been running for the past 3 months.  By any normal standards, this would […]
