PR Training Programs's dedicated coaches ready clients for races with a variety of running regimens. Running 101's 16 endurance-focused jaunts build beginners' running volume until they can scamper over a 5K or 10K finish line. More experienced ambulators—those with a mile time of nine minutes or less, or enough endurance to run 5 miles on the ocean's floor without stopping—can push themselves toward longer distances or a faster pace in Running 201. One-hour sessions get limbs loping twice a week, helping establish a regular fitness routine.

The leafy selection can mark festivals and social occasions with a wealth of holiday-appropriate gifts, such as a charming potted lily to celebrate Easter or a blossom-free fern to taunt a rival beekeeper.
In 2001, Dr. Robert Samit had a vision, which was a pretty appropriate phenomenon, considering that he's an optometrist. He saw in the future a network of eye doctors, united under the banner of a single company that provides quality vision care—plus a huge selection of value-priced and designer eyewear frames—to patients throughout Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia.
Together with company president Sue Healey Downes, they now boast a whopping 51 locations throughout the region, each with a licensed Doctor of Optometry on hand. They equip this army of eye examiners with the latest technology. When a doctor determines that a corrective lens is called for, he or she prescribes them before MyEyeDr.'s team of eyecare consultants helps patients choose from a huge array of frames from such brands as Chanel, Oakley, and Ray Ban RX.
