Don't Miss Harbor Run this Friday December 18th 6:30 a.m.

All ages and stages of fitness are welcome, of course. We meet in front of Anthony's Fish Grotto on N. Harbor Drive and West Ash Street. We gather at 6:20ish a.m., start running at 6:30, and go out to the Marriott (or beyond) and back for either 3 or 5 miles. Run (or walk) at your own pace. There are at least two public restrooms along the way, one close to the start. Free parking at the meters until 8 a.m. and there is ample parking at this time of the morning. It's a great way to start the weekend! See you there.

Welcome to the Women Lawyers' Fitness Group!

Given that: 1) law practice is time-consuming, and it can be difficult to fit everything in; 2) we want to exercise; and 3) we like being connected with other women in the legal profession, we have created the Women Lawyers' Fitness Group. We run (or walk), cycle, do yoga, and bootcamp-style workouts. We are also starting a rotating schedule of classes based on demand and instructor availability, including tae kwon do and Senegalese dance. One of the best things about the Women Lawyers' Fitness Group is that it's either very inexpensive or FREE. Our classes cost between $3.00 and $5.00 per session, and activities like running and cycling are free. Just show up with your bottle of water (and business cards, if you want) and work out.

Our sponsors include the World Beat Cultural Center in Balboa Park, which provides a fantastic venue for our indoor classes.

Our current recurring events are:

Wednesday 6:30 a.m.-7:30 a.m. Bootcamp at the PETCO Park "Park at the Park," the large grass area open to the public located beyond centerfield. Rain cancels bootcamp. ONGOING; THERE WILL NOT BE BOOTCAMP DECEMBER 30 BUT WE WILL RESUME BOOTCAMP ON WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6.
