This Week’s Edition {eat. shop. play. explore.}

Hello Weekend! Hello Fun! Hello coffee! I was up all night with a 4 month old who thinks it’s fun to wake up every 3 hours — so, bring on the coffee!  But at least it’s Friday and time to share this week’s edition covering where to eat, drink, shop, play, and explore in the 805.  I don’t know about you, but I’m planning on heading outdoors and enjoying this lovely Spring weather:)

Work-It-Wednesday: November Community Fitness Events {local fitness}

November is not only the month of leaves changing colors, fall weather and Thanksgiving– but it seems to also be the month of 5ks, 10ks, marathons and workout classes! Maybe it’s because we all know at the end of the month we will be eating a lot of turkey and stuffing (okay, and mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie…. and the list goes on).

But it’s so worth it! Especially when there’s so many different ways to get your Work-It-Wednesday on at all activity levels.

Whether you’re looking for a yoga class, your first 5k, or another marathon under your belt- the 805 definitely has what you …
