We are still talking about Summer and today we are talking about Favorite Summer Activities.
I love love love the warm weather and the sunshine and use every moment to get in the sun (of course with sun-screen).
My #1 favorite thing to do in the summer is hang out at the beach. I wish I lived closer to one so I could go every weekend but sadly I don’t so when I can get there I cherish every minute! Next week, I will be in Costa Rica and I can’t wait to be on the beaches of that beautiful country.
A close second to the beach is being with nature where there are trees and trails! I have committed this summer, to get out and celebrate the National Park Service’s 100th birthday.
I can’t leave out my fitness activities:
Biking (a new love): beginning Triathlon training, I have gotten on a bike after maybe 20 years or so. It took me a while really get back on two wheels. I haven’t gone for a ride by myself but I really enjoyed riding with the kiddies. Next week when my official triathlon training, it will be me, my bike and the road.
Swimming (another new love): Since I had reduced my running to save my knee, I have really missed getting out of the house and having some me time. Getting into the pool, has really giving me that time back and I really enjoy it. I have always loved water (almost as much as I love fire….another blog post) and being in the water has been awesome.
Running: I do love running. Getting out, feeling the air (even in the DC humidity) and feeling the pavement…there is nothing like it!!
Here is the one thing that I would like to do outside this summer:
-yoga….I want to be able to feel my breathe and take in the air through my vinyasa flow ;). There is a yoga studio less than a mile from the villa where we are staying in Costa Rica, so I am hoping to get that outdoor yoga session in next week.
I can’t finish this post without talking about eating! I love food…I really do! My favorite summer eating is ICE CREAM!!! We have a Brusters Ice Cream near us and I can’t wait to enjoy a Sea Salted Caramel ice cream fromthem. Look at it..doesn’t it look sooooo yummy!!??!
We will talk more about summer foods next week but I just had to include this because it is one of my favorite summer activities!!
