May is: National Physical Fitness & Sports Month

AND Get Caught Reading Month 

CommunityCare of Lyme is celebrating by posting a book inspired sport or a sport that inspired a book!

This week’s nerve wracking sport is free climbing. We are highlighting Alone on the Wall: The Ultimate Limits of Adventure which helped to inspire the Oscar Winning documentary Free Solo. Below we are sharing a NYT Op-Doc on Alex and the making of Free Solo

(CCL Does not promote free climbing as this is, obviously, incredibly dangerous.)
