1) Try a new fitness class
I am totally hooked on Turbo Kick, a calorie-torching cardio kickboxing class at 24 Hour Fitness (various locations). Get a free 3 day pass to the gym and try it for yourself, or attend one of the many other fitness classes available. Maybe I’ll see you there!
2) …or explore a new neighborhood on foot
Take advantage of a peaceful Saturday or Sunday morning and go for a leisurely run through a new neighborhood. Choose an area with cute homes, quaint shops, and not a lot of traffic lights. I stumbled upon one of my favorite consignment stores this way!
3) Get inspired by stand up paddlers
One night only at the Mission Theater (NW 17th and Glisan), join director Brent Deal at a screening of H2indO, a documentary that follows seven of the world’s best stand up paddlers to Indonesia for an inside look at the world’s fastest growing sport.
4) Spice things up in the kitchen
5) …or leave the cooking to the pros
The Bite of Oregon culinary festival opens on Friday at the Portland waterfront. Sample small and large plates from some of Oregon’s finest restaurants, food carts, and vendors in the $2 to $10 range.
