Spring into Active this May

The weather in Colorado is pretty nice all year round, but spring is one of the best times to be active. Now that we’re getting closer to summer it means several things: warm weather, more sunshine and more outdoor activities. Not only is May the month of flowers, but it’s also National Physical Fitness and Sports Month. It was created to raise awareness about the importance of staying active, and there is no better time to be active than now! Getting out and moving doesn’t just have to be working out or going for a run, you can be active by walking around outside and exploring the wonderful city we live in.
