Healthy You

Donna Krug, Barton County

When the streets were torn up in front of her husband's office, Donna and John Krug decided to bike the 1.75 miles to work. Four years later, both say they miss it when they don't ride.

It is an easy way to include 40 minutes of exercise each day. The Krugs' are known around Great Bend as the couple who ride the tandem bike.

"Unless the temperature is below 20 or there is ice or snow underfoot, we ride," Krug noted. "Our love of bicycling has contributed a lot to our healthy lifestyle. We have ridden across Kansas four times and have ridden trails in at least 10 other states.

"Our motto is: 'Ride whenever and wherever you can.'"
