Dear Friends,

Five weeks ago, I decided to train for a 10K run on Thanksgiving. It had been nearly a year since I ran at all consistently, so I decided this might motivate me. My husband offered to run with me, even though he is much faster than me.

At the start, I was taking nearly 15 minutes to run a mile. Last Sunday, we ran five miles, each one was under 14 minutes, and the last was well under 13 minutes. I was surprised and delighted to see the progress, and I know a big part of my success is due to my husband's companionship and encouragement each step of the way.

Friends are like that. They offer support, encouragement, commiseration, and congratulations. I hope you have the friends you need to succeed in all your goals.

Happy Holidays! May the joy of friendship continue to enrich your life.

All the best,
Lisa Derx
Vice President
