Looking for ways to keep yourself moving next month? Although we’re finally seeing some blue skies after that lingering inversion, it’s still winter, and will be for a while. That means there aren’t many outdoor fitness events coming up in February. But you know how much the Treasure Valley loves to dress up in costumes and sweat in order to celebrate any holiday, right? So, don’t worry. You’ve got a couple of fun Valentine’s options to choose from, to help you work off all that candy, or you can really challenge yourself with a half marathon. Check out the list below.
