Did you get out to Sandy Creek? I haven't been out there in years. I really like the Botanical Garden on South Milledge. They've got some nice trails.

Oh, I totally did. :D It was a blast.

Talking to the hubby about going to Sandy Creek to walk, and he was iffy about it. Has someone been there, that can give me an opinion on the facilities and the walks/hikes and stuff?

This is my body and it's fine.
It's where I spend the vast majority of my time.
It's not perfect. But it's mine.

I want to, but I'm going to opt for zoo and picnic and stuff, instead. :) I've never been to Athfest and I've lived here for 8 years!

I've come to discover that making that list is much too time consuming!

However, I CAN do this for everyone, and I hope this is good enough:

This is the website for the event calendar:

www.visitathensga.com/things-to-do/e
ve
nts/


From there, simply click on the week you want to see the events in. I will post a reminder to look for new events each Sunday. Taking advantage of these is a great way to get on your feet and active!

Have fun and get moving!

-Cindy

I'm going to start adding to this every Friday, and post things that are happening the next week following. I totally encourage everyone else to add to this list as they need or want to!

Each addition will have the following listed, if it's available:

WHAT: (This will be the name of the activity, and more information about it if it's available.)
WHERE: (The address where this activity is happening, including appropriate zip code and phone number.)
WHEN: (The dates that this activity is running, if it's something that is recurring for a time.)
HOURS: (The hours of operation for the location.)
FEE: (Whether or not it's free to attend.)
FITNESS OPPORTUNITY: (For those that look for fun opportunity to get fitness minutes in, this is for you!)
WEBSITE: (The website to the venue, if available.)

If you decide to add some happenings around Athens, try to stick to this formula. It will make it easy for us to access and see if it's an activity we want to partake in. :) Thanks!

This is the place to let everybody know about things that are happening in Athens and the surrounding counties. The events don't have to be fitness related. Festivals, charity events like pet rescue fund raisers, or anything that you think we would be interested in are all welcomed here.
