Hello everyone,

Just wanted to give you the heads' up that yesterday's NY Times featured a great article called 'Free the Mind and Fewer Injuries May Follow'. Incidentally, it is written by Sally Wadyka - a great journalist and successful 2006 Grand Teton Marathon finisher.

Her message is clear - reduce the impact of stress in your life and you are paving the road for athletic success and injury prevention. Succintly, the article reads:
