Mt Tabor Hike This Wednesday at Noon


Come take the Mt Tabor Challenge with Anne and the boot camp crew!  We meet at noon this Wednesday July 15th at the north side of the park near the intersection of Belmont and S.E. 69th.  We will start at the stairs (count em – 300!)  Then go off road so wear comfortable trail shoes.

The high is supposed to be 90 tomorrow so this will be the place to be – most of the trails are in the shade.  For more info or to R.S.V.P. call Anne at 503-705-4762.


Can Exercise Reduce Anxiety?

Can exercise reduce your anxiety and boost your mood?  Research says yes!  According to this article studies suggest that regular exercise can help alleviate anxiety as much as medications and the effects may last longer than those of drugs.

While short 10 to 15 minute bouts of exercise can improve your fitness and your mood, a total of 30 minutes of exercise a day is recommended.  This week try taking the stairs at work, or parking your car a few blacks away from your destination.  What are your favorite tips for adding more movement into your day?
