Down here in the south, it’s hard to get a good walking or running workout in during the summer months, unless you do it really early in the morning. Otherwise it’s just too darn not to do anything outside.

That’s exactly why I look forward to fall with it’s cooler days. It’s just now starting to be comfortable outside in the late afternoon. Time to get back into a workout schedule that includes some outside time.
How about you? Ready to hit the road (or sidewalk) as well?
