    Besides sex, right?

    My favorite is beach running. I love to walk on the beach at low tide, where the sand is smooth and condensed and run barefoot as far as I can. Then I can cool off in the ocean.

      Sex is a good one! Aerobic activity! 😉

      I’ve always wanted to try beach running but haven’t. Someday!

    Too many tomatoes? Lucky! I would just make a giant batch of pasta sauce – cook tomatoes down with garlic, olive oil and fresh basil – no need to can just put in a freezer zip top bag – I usually use 2 cups per bag, squeeze the air out and lay them flat on top of each other.

    Nothing like having fresh pasta sauce in the dead of winter! 😀

      Do I chop up the tomatoes into small pieces?

    What a beautiful hike! I love waterfalls.

    My favorite non gym activity is obviously biking. I prefer it above anything else.

      If you ever make it out here, I’ll take you on some hikes you’ll love.

      Biking is quickly becoming my new favorite non-gym activity.

    Looks gorgeous! And I can’t believe people go there in high heels. Sheesh!

      You would be amazed at what you see at Multnomah Falls. It’s ridiculous!

    some of my brothers were there on Saturday too!

    i was at Full Sail instead 🙂

      Were your brothers wearing flip flops or high heels as they hiked?? 🙂

      You picked smart. I could use a Full Sail….

    I love hiking and definitely don’t feel like I got enough of it in this summer.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I didn’t do enough hiking either. Usually we do a lot in the summer but we were both kind of consumed with biking!
