Hey guys! This was supposed to get published yesterday, but since I was dealing with those photo issues, I never got the chance. So just popping in quick this afternoon to give ya a little heads up on a fun event that may just be happening in a city near you:
SELF Magazine’s Workout in the Park
This is the 19th year of the Workout in the Park series, and the event will be happening in CHICAGO, NEW YORK, & SAN FRANCISCO.

In honor of the upcoming events, SELF magazine also put together a few new rockin’ playlists, and asked if I’d be interested in sharing them with all of you. Of course I’d love to share – I mean, who couldn’t use a hot new workout playlist every now and then, right? So, here ya go!
New Workout Playlists
I always thought the Workout in the Park would be fun (I’ve been reading about it for years), but it just never seem to work with my schedule. Is anyone else planning on attending any of the events listed above, or have you attended in the past?
