Your opportunity to be active in the outdoors 
in a fun, safe and social environment.
Tomorrow a great group of Hoigaard's Outdoor Women will be heading north to paddle, explore, and relax at the Apostle Islands! I am so excited to share an adventure with these women. It is amazing to see the strength and power we have to paddle through big open waters. We have been practicing (at the derby :)) and are ready for 4 days of work and reward. Pictures and stories to follow in next weeks email.

Last week was another beautiful evening at Lake Harriet. We had a big group pushing their walking to the next level with poles! Tonight the rain is holding off and we get to explore a section of the Minnehaha Creek. We will meet in front of the Lynnhurst recreation center at 6pm.
