First outdoor event of Spring in a couple weeks. I know the Wisconsin Adventure Race Series is coming to town in August so this would be a good primer for anyone interested in that event.

One of many Irish proverbs I learned from my Mother: May you be in heaven for two hours before the devil knows you're there! Happy St. Patty's Day on the one day of the year we are all Irish! Celebrate responsibly! Don't look like tomorrow morning. Almost Guiness O'Clock at the store!#gearupheadout #everyoneirish

We've written about it, shared articles about it. Getting outside is good for you. Physically, mentally, and emotionally. Now the question is "How much time do you need to spend outside to realize the benefits?' To paraphrase an old popular saying "Two hours a week can keep the doctor away!". Don't take our word for it though. People a lot smarter than us are proving it. Learn more at https://bit.ly/38QklSO.#gearupheadout #getoutside #nochildleftinside
