Once the 4th of July has been celebrated, the lazy days of summer accelerate at warp speed. Soon, our shadows will stretch, the leaves will begin to change and the kids will head back to school.
I’ve learned how to slow down this special time of year while the days are long and warm. Want to know my secret? Make time for yourself and get outside!
These are a few of the hikes I’ve taken in Colorado this summer.
Join the Wild Rider Fitness Challenge. Create some memories while exercising your body and I’ll link you up. Take a couple of pictures while walking, running, biking, swimming, cliff diving, or dancing (the very best exercise), and post a picture or two on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #WRFChallenge. I’ll include it here on the Wild Ride.
Don’t have a blog? No worries. Join us anyway. It’s a virtual gang of exercising pals. Commit to 2-3 days of exercise a week for at least 30 minutes. Make one of them an outdoor adventure.
This challenge has been great incentive for me all summer. Sometimes it takes an extra effort to get out of the house, but it’s always worth it.
Here are some photos from other #WRFChallengers:
Mary Hone from Tales from the Back Road hiked with her dapper dogs.
August McLaughlin from Girl Boner © shared her hike.
Ted Strutz from Ted Books Daily Pics took a hike and some amazing photos.
Carrie Rubin from the The Write Transition shared a giggle while out walking.
Nicci from Nicci Carrera Romance took a walk on the 4th.
My daughter, Courtney and her friend Katie joined the challenge!
There are several weeks of summer to enjoy before the challenge ends on September 8th. Share your outdoor adventure with the hashtag #WRFChallenge and maybe you’ll be featured next time!
Have you felt summer accelerate? What’s up with that?
