Let's play a little game: I say "osteoporosis" and you think of the first thing that comes to mind. Did you picture a sweet, 80 year old grandma sitting in a hospital bed with a broken hip? Maybe! But did you know that over 9.9 million people in the United States have osteoporosis and another 43.1 million have osteopenia? Probably not, I sure didn't until I started researching this post!
As the weather gets warmer in New England, tis the season for runners to return to the streets. Last weekend, over 7,000 people ran the Holyoke St. Patrick's Day 10K Road Race! I have to admit that I did not expect to write a post about running, I mean "lift" is in the name of the blog! Running and I have had a more tumultuous relationship than Ryan and Rachel in the Notebook. We love each other, we hurt each other, we stay away for years at a time. But in the end, we get back together and this time it seems, for good.
