As another year ends and a New Year begins, one can always look back on numerous positive happenings as well as sad ones we experienced. I am sure we all know people who had a challenging 2021 either with a health or work situation. If you know someone having a rough time, maybe you can do something to make their life better.  Also, when you are making your New Year’ Resolutions, I hope you will consider volunteering at a local road race. If possible, help to sponsor a local race or help a new runner understand proper training and help your neighbor who might need some assistance. If we all do a few kind acts to help others who are nearby, I am sure 2022 will be a Great Year!  Also, remember to shop locally to help all the businesses in your home town.
