Friday Five - 6.2.17


Happy Friday!! It is going to be a beautiful day!!

I'm joining the Friday 5 Link up with  Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness. The Theme for today is Summer Workouts... But I'm not very good at giving advice, so bear with me as I tell you the things I love to do in the summer. Check out the link up for real summer tips from real experts!!



1. Hiking- I know that hiking can be a year round activity, but it is so much more enjoyable when all the trees are covered with leaves and we can hear all the birds singing... other than the crows in winter.



2. Early Morning running - I am ready to accept that I am a Morning fair weather runner. I enjoy getting up early on the days that the sun is already up and running before work. And the summer is the time I'm most committed to the morning running.

 
3. Canoeing- My family and I schedule a canoeing trip each year, it's only about 3 miles, but we enjoy the outside time with my siblings.



4. Eating Ice cream- I never feel guilty about eating ice cream, and in the summer, it feels like a requirement to keep the body temperature even!



5. The Sun and warmth - I was spoiled growing up in Mexico. Our weather was beautiful year round, so I love all the sun and all the warm temperatures in the summer. Even when it gets really hot, I will remind myself that from December - March, it will be cold and dark.

    1. We canoe in Brandywine river, close to my parents. It's a beautiful route, and the staff there is super awesome. They have this cat that walks around their office, and when we go to pickup our car keys, he always wants to come home with us!

      yes, We have Knoebels in the schedule for July. my son wants to spend the night, so we are considering hotels/ camping there. He loved it so much last year!

  2. So I never keep icecream in the house so I always find it a treat when I go out for it. And I only do it in the summer!

  3. I am most certainly NOT a morning runner but I so so SO wish I was. I love the heat too though, even though I didn't grow up in Mexico. I promise to never complain about the heat during our summer!

  4. The canoeing trip sounds so fun! I'm with you on the morning runs in the Summer. I rarely get out early in the Winter as I don't like running in the dark.

  9. Hands down, summer is my favorite ;-) I don't whine about the crazy heat or humidity because our winters in Iowa are such the extreme opposite LOL

  11. How fun that you have a family canoe trip! I don't usually go out for ice cream because I find it is more about "something to do" than something I'm hungry for and I don't need the calories..lol
