Is it summer yet?!?  With my first 5K of the season behind me (definitely not my personal best, but a start!) and summer finally on the horizon, I figured I’d share some of my adventure plans!  The next few months are full of awesome events, from themed 5K’s (be sure to check out the electric run in August) to obstacle courses (yeah Warrior Dash!), bike tours and of course music festivals.

I love the outdoors, travelling and new adventures so writing for CT Weekender is a no-brainer. A CT native, my only significant time spent outside of this beautiful state was the year I lived in Kingston, Jamaica as a community advocate and volunteer. I thoroughly believe in my CT Weekender Team and hope you enjoy our content! Please send us thoughts and comments and submit events you would like to see posted.
