Nambe Offers Up Healthy Snacks


Erik does some ‘market research’ on the healthy snacks Nambe is providing for us every Wednesday.  The verdict? Awesome!  Try them yourself on your walk or run –

Following national efforts to prioritize pedestrian safety, the Pima Association of Governments is looking for guidance on regional walking priorities.  We certainly are an avid bunch of walkers and runners, so let’s share our thoughts, ideas and comments to make Tucson an even better place to GET OUT.
