Our Facebook Live Feed from the Saucony Shoe Demo. We interviewed Goldstream Sports Run Manager Stacy Fisk about the latest in Saucony shoes and Chris Oliver from Team RWB about their fundraising run Eagle Charge 2016 taking place at the store this weekend.
25 years as a para-professional dancer taught me several things:

They kicked things off with #FairbikesFirstFriday, a celebration of biking mixed with an artistic flair. We interviewed John Stowman and Jennifer Eskridge about the program.

My husband would annually present his Excel spreadsheet on the screen, all the cells filled with every spending category in the family budget alongside a corresponding dollar amount. He even had the formulas in place so that if you changed one number, they all changed accordingly. My husband loves numbers. Continue reading
