As I scrolled through my social media feeds this past week, I noticed 2 “celebrity” friends who posted about being tested for the Corona Virus.

Small Businesses are the heart beat of America. It’s what we “stand” for, “The Great American Dream” right? It requires sacrifice, hard work and risk-taking. Well, as I watch my clients and other small businesses downsize or fold up shop, I get very emotional. I’m seeing the starter business that was just getting up and running, or a long time business that is now considered NON ESSENTIAL during this COVID-19 Pandemic just close down.

George LeStrange Preserve is one of my favorite trails to hike/run. For one: There is an almost EXACT 1 mile loop around the lake. This makes it easier for us to know how much walking or running we’ve done.

And for three: There’s side trails all over to explore. They even go all the way out passed I-95 (links up with FP Mountain Bike…
