Fall Into Exercise!

I don't know about you guys, but where I live, its starting to cool off a little bit. What a relief because I could barely look out my window without sweating this summer! I wanted to take this opportunity to encourage anyone who has been shying away from exercise because of the heat to GET TO IT! Particularly in my region, there aren't many months that just feel great outside, so why let them pass you by without taking advantage of great weather!

Try walking in your neighborhood and notice the colorful leaves or fall decorations that people have displayed. Find a nearby park or lake to walk/run around for some variety. Sign up for a 5K in your area as these really go into full swing in the fall.

The moral of the story is, don't find another excuse to miss exercise, just get out and enjoy the fall air! It is a great way to spend time with your children, have some "me time", lower your stress level, and appreciate nature.

Happy Fall! I'd love to hear what kind of physical activity you're going to be getting this fall!

Motivational Monday:

I love to exercise because there is nothing like breathing fresh air after a day stuck in the office!


  1. Looking forward to half-marathon #3 in October! I've been able to train with a few more longer runs this go-around, which hopefully will give me the confidence and endurance to break 2 hours.

  2. Congrats, Busy-Dad-E! I'm looking forward to hearing how you do!!!

  3. Definitely no excuses about not walking outside now. Such a relief to be comfortable in the mornings without the extreme heat and humidity.
