Are you hoping to get moving this weekend? We’ve got beautiful fall weather in store, so lace up those tennies (or hiking boots, or skates), and burn some calories instead of sitting on that couch watching football or the World Series. This time of year is perfect for taking a hike in the beautiful Boise Foothills. To check on trail conditions, click on this link. Or, get in the Halloween spirit with some fun fitness challenges for the whole family. Here’s a list to help you plan how you’ll stay off that couch this weekend.
