Every year something happens to every person here on earth. We get a year older. The day of our birthday that we celebrate as a kid and try to forget as an adult. For me I just turned 31 years old, which is crazy to think. First off, I came to the realization that not much special happens when...

Community…A Race Ran Together

Posted by Brooks Wachs on

As I sit in my office today writing this blog, I have had time to reflect on the journey that was my 8th Half Marathon.
