Welcome to the Summer 2012 Issue!

Summer has arrived!  It snuck up on us here in Boston with a rainy June, but the recent heat has let us know it’s time to get out and enjoy the sunshine! We hope you are all having a happy, healthy summer so far.

While the Friedman School is quiet with students spread across the country and around the world doing summer internships, we are still keeping up on the latest news in nutrition, fitness and Boston happenings.  In this issue, Max Prokopy expands on his popular Running-ology 101 article in Running 102 – Focus on the Female.  Lainey Younkin discusses the controversial NYC proposal to ban sugary beverages in So Long Supersize, and Lisa D’Agrosa tells us how an apple a day might actually keep the doctor away (or at least help with weight loss) in Increase Your Metabolism with an Apple?  And don’t miss Ashley Carter’s suggestions for fresh, new recipes that are perfect for the summer season in Grilled Goodness: A Summer Meal on the Grill.

Enjoy your summer and our summer issue, and we’ll see you in the fall!

Your co-editors,

Ashley Carter & Lisa D’Agrosa
