In an effort to help you soak in the final weeks of summer and be your happiest self, we’re encouraging you to skip the gym and take your workouts outside this week. Run a few miles around your neighborhood, take on that trail you’ve been meaning to try, or flow through a yoga sequence at a nearby park. There’s no wrong way to do it, as long as you’re outside and having fun. Make sure to join in on Instagram, and don’t forget to tag your friends!
Fitness and running have always been a major part of my life, but when I moved from Connecticut to Southern California over three years ago, I discovered just how happy outdoor runs make me.
Back home, I was forced to run and exercise indoors for the majority of the year. Since moving to California, I’ve made it a priority to make time for myself and enjoy the outdoors and the scenery around me. I just want to live the best life possible, and I love the way running and being healthy make me feel.
