An Open Letter To My Daughter

An Open Letter To My Daughter

23 October 2020

By – Adam Martin – Newton Running Ambassador For those who follow my blog, I occasionally make note of my daughters (I have two). My eldest - who is four, absolutely loves to run with me. In fact, one particular day this summer, I decided to attached my GPS watch to her simply to see how far she actually goes. She logged close to three miles in one afternoon at the park. I have no doubt running is in my girls’ future and I look forward to the many miles we log together. That said, the 2016 Runners World survey and article listed...

Minimizing Risk When Air Quality Is Poor

20 October 2020

By – Josh Emdur D.O. – Chief Medical Officer – SteadyMD The 2020 American West wildfire season has been one for the record books with over 6.6 million acres of scorched earth across California, Oregon, Washington, and Colorado.

Triny Willerton Tells Her Story "My name is Triny Willerton. I have been a Newton Running Ambassador for the last four years and have been running for the previous twelve. I was not an active person until after the birth of my last baby in 2008. I found myself depressed in a body that I didn't recognize. So, I joined a program at my gym, changed my nutrition, and started working out. At first, I only wanted to get fit and lose the baby weight, but a friend convinced me to run in a Turkey Trot with her. That is...

Prioritizing Safety While Running Alone

2 October 2020

By – Michele Weinstein – Newton Running Ambassador  Things happen every single day which we don’t have control over.  We can’t decide what happens to us or what happens in our lives, all we can do is live each day trying to live out our best lives. For many of us, that involves keeping our physical and mental health in check with outdoor activities.  Whether that’s running, hiking, or walking, many will agree that there’s something therapeutic about putting a good pair of running shoes on and just getting out of the house. For many, it’s the one time throughout...
