I’m happy to say that it’s officially time to spring forward. As the weather gets warmer, we often look for activities and events to attend outside. I can’t think of a better way to than to spend my day outside with Mother Nature.  Fun runs and marathons allow us to get together with family, friends or folks with similar interests and get moving! I’ve gathered spring fun runs and races in the Hudson Valley to fully enjoy the warmer temps. Grab your water, sunnies and sunscreen; I’ll see you out there!
