Yes July is the month that marks the middle of summer.  Even though we all know that summer does officially start the third week of July we all seem to look at summer is being June, July, and August. July being the middle of summer is not what excites me.  July excites me because it is the month where I personally get renewed with energy in my own exercise, fitness, wellness, and nutrition regimen.
