Weekly Chatter

If you’re a typical North American, at the end of a long, stressful day at work, you’re not saying, ‘I can’t wait to get in my car. I would just love to go for a drive.’ It’s much more likely you’ll say, ‘I wish I could go for a walk.”~ Todd Litman

  • RT chinzeDPT: Beautiful morning for a bike commute in #TCMI

Weekly Wrap

Have a weekend.
