Welcome to spring everyone! Though we still have some time to wait until those warm late-spring mornings start welcoming us onto the streets and trails, one can dream a little, right? So, this week we're going to allow our minds to slip ahead to late spring to learn more about an opportunity to hit the streets with a bunch of fellow runners on June 10 at the Second Annual SIGA Good Food Run.  This event is held by the SIGA Long Runners to raise funds CHEP Good Food. For those not familiar with CHEP, its mission is to work with children, families and communities to improve access to good food and promote food security.

Happy holidays to everyone! As we continue to make our way through this wonderful time of year, we thought it fitting to share a story that exemplifies the spirit of the holiday season. To do so, we're going to be speaking with Kim Gleim, a teacher at Nutana Collegiate. Kim is a runner, who has begun a running program for students at Nutana.
