Be Healthy Maine

Running: A Way to Show My Gratitude

On Sunday, September 6th, I completed the Boston Marathon in Bangor.  I created my own start/finish line, my own race course, I had water stations, I had an aid station with my own medical team (my hubby!), and a cheering squad (my awesome neighbors). And, it was AMAZING!  I thought about everyone who believed in me and who made donations to BCH.  I thought about the healthcare team who saved Katie’s life and all the patient partners.  I thought about how my simple act of lacing up has made such a profound difference in, not only my life, but in the lives of those who need BCH.

The Great Pepperoni Shortage of 2020?

When it comes to pizza, remember, everything is okay in moderation. So, if you can find pepperoni and it doesn’t break the bank, a piece every now and then won’t hurt. However, there are many ways to healthify (on Be Healthy Maine, it’s a word!) your favorite pie.

Making the Move to Maine

In 2008, my husband Paul and I relocated our family to Bangor for work.  Although we had never been to Bangor before, we were looking to move to the closest city near the eastern Canadian border (my husband and I are both from east coast Canada).  Twelve years have passed since then and    Bangor has not disappointed us!
