Happy Summer

It is the first day of summer. Here are just a few of the reasons why I love the summer:

  • the sun
  • warm enough to kayak, hike, walk, run
  • the beach
  • reading a book at the beach
  • lazy days
  • cooling off in a movie theater
  • eating outside at restaurants
  • finding a shady spot to rest
  • running in a warm summer rain
  • eating fresh, locally grown foods
  • sweating (sometimes)
  • the semi-vacation attitude so many people seem to have
  • traveling

I’m sure I’ve missed some things that make summer wonderful. Any obvious misses stand out to you?

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
