"Open Door does great things for many people in Southern Minnesota. They offer many different services and are inclusive of people from all walks of life. They are flexible and accommodating and truly want individuals to get the care they need."
"Just to keep going. Don’t worry about others around you or how many miles it’s been, but focus on the road ahead and try to hit a personal best."
Sam's Tips on Running:
"Everyone has different motivators. I like having the time to listen to music and enjoy the surroundings. It’s a carefree time to relax."
