Summer is upon us and it is a great time to enjoy the outdoors and get in a good run! Cardio is the best way to burn calories and keep your heart healthy! The recommended amount of cardio to maintain your health is 30 minutes most if not all days of the week. It's time to start moving!
I had the pleasure of speaking to a group of moms at with our local MOPs group (Moms of Preschoolers) about nutrition and exercise. I can only hope they got as much out of the program as I did. It was a rainy day outside, but you would never have known that by the cheery smiles and supportive chatter amongst all the women I met that morning and evening. I was expecting to teach them a bit about proper nutrition and lead them in a mini-Mommy Recess class, but instead I was the one learning from each of them.

It was a hot day here in Phoenix - and my wave was supposed to start at 10. We snuck in the 9:45 wave which was pretty easy as there weren't many lined up for that time. It seemed daunting at first - the obstacles we saw as we drove in made me nervous. The first mile running in the very hot Phoenix sun. We got the first obstacle and that went pretty easy. Second obstacle - yeah I was a bit too short for that one. Had to skip it....booo. Kept going. Overall I only skipped that one obstacle and got a lot of help from others along the way.
