Letter from the Editor

By Leslie Moore

After years of daily running, several minor, yet painful, injuries slowed me down. And then, a minor car accident last spring ground me completely to a halt. Except for my weekly yoga class and the occasional beach walk, I wasn’t exercising at all. And I could tell. Everything hurt. My energy level dropped along with my mood. In October, after Hurricane Matthew came through our area, I was left with a mess in my yard, like most of you reading this. I began cleaning up – spending all weekend in the yard, and I even worked until dark after work each day. In spite of all the physical labor, I realized I felt so much better! Getting regular exercise again was making a positive difference in my life. Instead of being tired, I was energized! So, once the yard was clean I began walking every day. Now I’m even adding in a few short sprints each time I hit the road. I feel better, I sleep better and my yoga practice has improved tremendously. For me at least, exercise is the key to a happier, healthier life.
