It’s the "Dog Days" of summer, and an unseasonably hot one at that.
But for thousands of people in Lawrence, Kan., the time of year still means one thing: meeting up for Don “Red-Dog” Gardner’s daily workouts inside or next to KU’s Memorial Stadium.
Gardner, a former police officer and Lawrence High School security guard, has led the year-round community gatherings for 29 years.
On Monday, KCUR’s Elana Gordon stopped by the 6 a.m. workout and brought back this audio postcard.
