The best news I have heard in a very long time happened this past week, in the form of an announcement the Spirit of Gettysburg 5K will be taking place once again in June. This is a welcome blessing on so many levels, not only personally, but for everyone seeking a bit of “normal life.”

Speaking from the true voice of experience, the past year has held challenges and devastating losses. Thankfully, we seem to be on the road to recovery, and the Spirit race is a beacon of light to runners and walkers who are yearning for a true group event once again. With that in mind though, our world of caution and safety must still be maintained while training and getting that oh so important piece of self-care that daily exercise yields.
