Use caution when exercising outside due to poor air quality

Many of you may have noticed a layer of ash on your cars over the past couple days. This is related to the Oregon wildfires that are currently burning throughout the state. As a result, the air quality in this region is poor (especially for those with lung conditions such as asthma). It is recommended to avoid or exercise caution when exercising outside until conditions clear.
