Spring is a wonderful time to enjoy the warmer temperatures and get outside to soak up some sunshine. Warmer weather can be a great motivator to get outside and exercise.

It’s important to remember to stay hydrated and protect your skin from the sun while enjoying outdoor activities. Interested in joining a walking or running club? Ready to Run, Running and Fitness Walking Club begins this Summer, held on Wednesday nights from 7 – 8 p.m. at XGT Fitness, 138 Mountain Road.
