  • Did This. Love walking around it.
  • Run, skate, yoga, they are countless things to do. Rent a paddle boat and take part in the moon float during the full moon, and take sailing lessons on a 16ft boat
  • For all your outdoor needs. Get some exercise or relax in your favorite spot. Also take advantage of special events like Moonlight floats on the lake during full-moons!
  • Each time I go around the lake, I get a little faster. My goal by the end of summer is to run the whole thing! Who is with me?? :-) #runaway
