EricksonandCo.com is hosting a Summer Excersise Challenge! I am intrigued, but I'm not sure if I can do quite as much as this asks for. I am thinking I can change it up a bit to allow for my bad ankle because I can't run. I'm going to sleep on it, but check it out and see what you think! Maybe you would like to join and get in a little better shape this summer. Here is the schedule for the first two weeks so you can see what you think.
