Adopt a Space (and get toned)

Spring broke through enough yesterday to jump back into cleaning up the park and neighborhood. 2 hour marathon of squats and lunges picking up seasonal trash. Legs and butt feeling joyfully fried today. Such a great sensation tidying up the area ... 10+ bags of trash and found a pair of gloves that cleaned up just fine!
I totally encourage everyone to adopt a space this spring and all year long - doesn't matter how big, or how small:
*street area in front of your home
*your usual bus stop (great way to kill some time while waiting)
Why I do it?
*putting out a positive vibe to the community and ideally inspiring others to participate in some fashion
*supporting the environment and wildlife by removing harmful/toxic materials
*provides a great workout in the outdoors
Keep an eye open for spring community events in your area and join in the spring cleanup! Don't wait for city workers to come by - be an active member of your community and show your love for the environment.
Man, I need some yoga for my thighs and hips.
