Summer is a great time to get your workout in gear as those early morning runs (while temperature is still kind of cool) are really nice as is changing up your indoor workout and hitting the pool for some laps.

Is your workout getting boring and hard to complete? Or have you gotten to the point that you don't even want to go to the gym?It's summer time which is the perfect time to spice up your workout.

Finally, this feels like spring! Beautiful night on the deck with a turkey burger and small (yes, really small) glass of wine. I live for this weather.

June 1st is National Running Day.I've been a "runner" off and on since high school. Back then I wanted to participate in a sport but had few skills, so I found my place on the track team.
