        What I love most about summer is being out on the lake, I prefer things with motors but this Stand-Up Paddle Boarding has certainly become the trendy thing to do out on the Lake.  I have no complaints it’s a pretty creative way to get a workout in, so I’ll take that anything that keeps me out of the gym and I’ll give it a try.

        For all of you that keep seeing them on the lake and having been dying to give it a shot, here is your opportunity. Austin’s SUP ATX has partnered with RunTex to offer free 5 Free clinics/lessons each week in Austin on Lady Bird Lake, Lake Austin and Lake Travis. I am not sure if these are going to continue thoughout the entire summer, I think through August but I am not making any promises!

        I think that it is a great opportunity to get out there, put your inhibitions aside and try something outside your comfort zone. The fact that you can take a free clinic is just awesome to me, why not round up your friends or family on a hot summer evening and make a night of it? The way I see things is that this is just another step that we can take in our endeavors as a city to keep Austin Fit.
