Brrr! It was cold on Saturday for our walk. And windy! Yet, today, it’s 50 degrees. I guess what they say is true: If you don’t like the weather, stick around. It will change. Speaking of change, don’t forget to change your clocks to Daylight Savings this Saturday night/Sunday morning. Spring forward!

10 Foods for Longevity. 10 Foods for Improved Immune System.
Who doesn’t want to increase their longevity, and improve their immune system? Here are a couple articles recommending foods that will help achieve each one: Here is the Longevity article. Here is the immune system article. If you want to try to kill two birds with one stone, just eat lots of broccoli, seeds, nuts and vegetables, which should cover both lists.
March 14 – Coffee Talk with Molly & Andrea
The last couple weeks at Winans, some of us have been having lively discussions about social issues: affordable housing, minimum wage, urban gardens, etc. We will continue these “roundtable discussions” at Winans after our walk on March 14 (around 9:15am). Joining us will be Molly Tafrate, chief operating officer of SocialVentures, and Andrea Applegate, board chair. They will share with us how social enterprises help solve some of our community’s great challenges. Thanks, Molly and Andrea!
5 Stomach Symptoms You Should Never Ignore
Ugh. Stomach issues are no fun. And I’m particularly vulnerable to them during races. I think because I’m all keyed up. Here are 5 Stomach Symptoms You Should Never Ignore and what they can mean and, most importantly, when to call your doctor.
When a broken heart is real
There’s nothing worse that losing a loved one or experiencing a tragedy. And the pain feels real. Really real. Here’s a brief interview with a cardiologist who answers the question, Can You Die Of A Broken Heart? (Quick answer: yes, but it’s rare.) If that makes you too sad, check out this video of a toddler relentlessly chased by a herd of golden retriever puppies.
