    You hear about wanting a “summer body” during the winter months quite a lot, and now that it’s summer, people are either working hard, or hardly working on that.
    But don’t focus on the body.
    Focus on feeling great, just being healthy and exercising.
    I love it though. I love seeing people workout. Even if it’s just walking around the track at the park, people are getting in a good workout.

  • Bump, set, SPIKE!

  • What is your favorite game to...

    As an outdoorsman or -woman, have you ever played the “what if” game?
    What if you were given the choice of hunting one season and one season only? Take it even further and chose your weapon and one weapon only?
    What would it be? Would it be doves with a Browning over/under in 12 gauge? Dove hunting would be a good choice. Weather’s usually nice, the bag limit is generous, and you can hunt with a bunch of friends! And they’re good eatin’. You’ll shoot a lot, but hit less than you shoot.
