Stoneycreek River near Johnstown, PA has a recreational release every other weekend in the summer months. We managed to get on the release as well as enjoy some extra water from rain before and during our run.
We hooked up with some local boaters who shared some of their favorite lines with us.

Being able to get out on the water, go for a run, or ride my bike; creates a joy in my heart that gives me the fortitude to handle life's challenges. It makes me a better girlfriend, daughter, sister, and aunt. It also inspires me to ignite a spark in others to get outside and find beauty and pleasure in life.

Life continues to be a journey, and we can't expect our path to be clear. We can expect challenges and strive to learn from them. I have learned that feeding the soul keeps the heart alive. It allows us to live and to love.
