  • Doug Hawley: Lace 'em up and let's go running

    You’ve probably heard the athletic adage, “He (or she) can do anything he (or she) wants to do.” This pertains to that natural male or female athlete. My personal feeling is the addition of two key words are necessary to the saying: “WITHIN REASON.”
