Stair and Sprint Work out.

Young Members Date: Wed June 12, 2013

C2B, We will meet at S. Station at 615pm and depart for the Seaport District no later than 630pm. After a brisk ¾ mile walk we will arrive at some outdoor stairs and conduct a fun workout and a few sprints in a park near the trade center. All fitness levels are welcome; this can be as hard or easy as you want to make it. We will do multiple trips up and down the stairs and short sprints on grass. Everyone stays together, no one gets left behind. We will do this for about an hour, then we can do a short jog or grab something to eat at one of the many casual out door dinning venues. Rain or shine, please email leader to register. This is a great way to get in shape for bigger hikes and hills.
