Vita Course (Murray Park)

Because of the crazy weather we have been having lately. We decided to stay away from those snow filled mountains, and go to the Vita Course in Murray Park for our exercise and weekly get together.

For those of you who don't know what a Vita Course is. You follow a path and go to about ten different stations where it will tell you to do three various exercises and supplies the equipment to do it on. It was pretty fun. And with our group, pretty hysterical.

Some of the exercises were easy, and some were hard. And then some were really hard. There was one where you had to propel yourself over a bar with both legs. Which scared me to death. Because of how clumsy I am. So I decided to skip it. Jon and Eric did a pretty good job of it though. Look at that form!

This station just seemed to be a tad dangerous. At one point Jon came close to hurting his, well himself. (Let's keep this blog PG rated.)

Then we all measured how high we could jump. And looked like idiots while doing it. But that was part of the fun.

Even Ella got in on the fun.

But I think for the most part she just thought we looked like crazy people.

Thanks to everyone who came and made it fun. Next weekend I think we should do a hike. I'm just not coordinated enough for those crazy exercises!
