Breathe Today. SA Tomorrow. What Can You Do?

Last week the City of San Antonio~Office of Sustainability launched an Air Quality awareness campaign to encourage businesses and residents to help reduce air pollution.

This is just the beginning of a campaign set out to make the city a fabulous place to work, play and live in while enhancing the environment and quality of life for all residents as well as future generations. The air we breathe should be as pure as we as a whole can help make it.

#BreatheTodaySATomorrow #AirQuality

“Air quality is a priority for San Antonio because of it’s impact on our community’s health and economy,” said Chief Sustainability Officer Douglas Melnick. In October 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a more stringent, health-based air pollution standard of 70 parts per billion (ppb) of ground level, ozone emissions. Bexar County’s air quality is currently at 73 parts per billion. Ground level ozone is created from emissions from various sources such as industrial facilities, motor vehicle exhaust and gasoline fumes in the presence of sunlight.

Don’t just breathe, breathe clean. It’s our right.

What can you do to help keep the air cleaner everyday? According to EPA below are some examples.

Transportation tips:

  • Car pool, use public transportation, bike or walk when possible.
  • Combine errands to reduce “cold starts” of your car and avoid extended idling.
  • Be sure your tires are properly inflated.
  • Keep car, boat and other engines properly tuned, and avoid engines that smoke.
  • Follow gasoline refueling instructions for efficient vapor recovery. Be careful not to spill fuel and always tighten your gas cap securely.

Household Tips:

  • Use environmentally safe paints and cleaning products whenever possible.
  • Some products that you use at your home or office are made with smog-forming chemicals that can evaporate into the air when you use them. Follow manufacturers’ recommendations for use and properly seal cleaners, paints, and other chemicals to prevent evaporation into the air.
  • Conserve electricity. Consider setting your thermostat a little higher in the summer and lower in winter. Participate in local energy conservation programs. Look for the ENERGY STAR label when buying home or office equipment.
  • Consider using gas logs instead of wood. If you use a wood-burning stove or fireplace insert, make sure it meets EPA design specifications. Burn only dry, seasoned wood.

Lawn and garden Tips:

  • Mulch or compost leaves and yard waste.

There will be days when the ozone and pollution is expected to be high. We can do small things in order to keep our city air cleaner. I believe that if we practice putting these tips into our everyday life and explain to our children why this is important, it will make us more aware of the environment and space we live, work and play in. Awareness and education might just bring more caring and need for protection of the city love.

Remember that we are part of the imprint and we make an impact always.

 

Let the City of San Antonio~Office of Sustainability know what your doing to make air quality better.

I was born and raised in San Antonio and am a Nature Girl at heart. This means I play, hike, swim and have fun outdoors. If there is anything I can do to ensure that my family and friends breathe cleaner and leave it cleaner I will!

SeaWorld on a Sunday in San Antonio, Texas

The year was 1988 and my oldest daughter was just 2 years old. SeaWorld had officially opened in San Antonio, Texas. I was so excited to take my daughter and get lost in the park. I knew the visits would be many the moment we stepped in the world of the Sea. It was so magical, from the marine life to the amusement rides. I was happy to make memories for my daughter.  Many years have passed since my first visit.  My oldest is now a mommy herself with a 6 year old daughter who has become my partner in adventure. We decided on a Sunday for a funday with the family.

I was going to take on the task of entertaining not only my granddaughter, but my niece and nephew as well. Along for some support was my younger brother who last minute decided to join me as an extra adult, good call!

 

 

Rule number one in visiting any park should be a map and a plan. We were lucky enough to have two adorable volunteers for the job. Once they decided where we should go, we were off!

Did you know … that for more than 50 years SeaWorld has been a leading theme park and entertainment company delivering personal, interactive and educational experiences that blend imagination with nature enabling their guest to celebrate with and care for the natural world they share. Countless rides for all ages, shows to engage our hearts and mind and exhibits from conservation to personal interactions with Dolphins, Beluga Whales and Sea lions at SeaWorld Discovery Point.

A good pair of walking shoes a cool hat and hydration will make the day just a little smoother. Did I mention that they do have a height requirement for all rides and if your lucky enough you can make it extra adventurous. But no worries if your not tall enough because there is plenty to keep the family busy, requirements or not : ).

The kids, hands down, loved the Sesame Street Bay of Play. The kids were able to cool down with bubblers, geysers, jets and dumping water buckets. The Sesame Street friends are also out and about for great photo opportunities.

It’s also a great spot for the “adults” to relax. Keep in mind that you will want to take some sunscreen for the family and don’t hesitate to lather it on. If you forget, not a problem, plenty of souvenir shops around.

I officially became a cool aunt with the kids asking when we could do this again! I smiled, my day was complete. Thank you Sea World for the memories and we can’t wait to return. Maybe next time … Aquatica waterpark.

Fitfunand … Sunday Funday!

Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post but I was provided with entry passes to the park. I sincerely had a great time there and just had to share my own opinion and excitement for the park.

Chica Afuera at Brackenridge Park

I am where I know I was meant to be.

My first Easter at Brackenridge Park

You don’t have to travel far to find yourself in Nature. These parks, trails and open spaces are usually not that far from your home or work. The more I explore the more I uncover. The more I uncover, the more I want to share. My memories are many and I will forever be grateful that my parents loved me enough to fuel my soul. Was it my smiles and my enthusiasm every time they took me to the park that made them realize that was my happy place? Perhaps it was a combination of the love they had for me to want to see me smile and their appreciation for the outdoors. Whatever it was … it worked! Nature was a natural thing growing up. The outdoors was my playground!

Every park has it’s story and that is the journey.

 

If you ask me what my favorite city park is I would have to say Brackenridge Park. This very popular park is minutes from downtown San Antonio and I am totally positive that the reasons for it’s popularity would include the San Antonio Zoo, Japanese Tea GardenWitte MuseumBrackenridge Park Golf Course, walking trails, playgrounds, fishing, bird watching, a miniature train, Kiddie Park and the Sunken Garden Theater. These attractions are all withing walking distance from each other so make sure you put on a good pair of walking shoes when visiting and exploring.

San Antonio Zoo

Brackenridge Park is rich with history with evidence of human visitation and occupation dating back 11,000 years. Native American artifacts dating as early as 9200 B.C. have been found inside the parks boundaries. Historical buildings remain standing in the park as well like that of the 1878 Pumphouse #1, the oldest industrial building in Bexar County.

If your just old enough you might even remember the Horse stable, paddle boats and the Sky Ride that you would board at the Japanese Tea Garden and exit at the Zoo. For the record … I’m just old enough to remember, lol.

In my heart there are memories and there they will always be!

 

This park was introduced to me by my parents. It was a happy place for us and when I grew up and had my own family it was the first park I took my girls.

I have seen the park change through the years and the growth and development has been great. The Conservancy seeks to ensure the best possible user experience for future generations by improving park amenities, providing programming, and building a sense of stewardship in the community.

This park is very special to many and family traditions run deep.  It’s all about quality family time no matter where you are. The element of outdoors is just a plus. San Antonio Parks & Recreation does allow overnight camping during Easter weekend and they do extend the curfew hours. Check out the link in case your feeling adventurous, lol.

Fitfunand … Pafuera!

It is awesome to see more people on trails and outside running for whatever reason they feel they need to. Jogging is my foundation.

Ready, Set, Cyclebar!

I am motivated by all types of Fitness and this weekend was a date with CYCLEBAR.

The CYCLEBAR story!

In 2004, Bill Pryor and his sister Alex Klemmer decided to create one of the first independent cycling studios in the country in their Boston neighborhood. Both Bill, then a corporate executive, and Alex, a stay-at-home mom, recognized that there were three key ingredients to a successful indoor cycling experience: great instructors, great music, and a great environment.

EVERY RIDE ROCKS AT CYCLEBAR!

 

They opened their first dedicated studio a year later and have been perfecting their high-energy, cycling- focused concept ever since. Now, ten years later, Pryor and Klemmer have partnered with like-minded fitness enthusiasts to allow others to experience and benefit from the CycleBar experience.

I showed up at CycleBar in San Antonio, TX this weekend excited and ready to ride. I was greeted with enthusiasm and kindness from the moment I walked in. CycleBar is full of positive energy and I couldn’t wait to see “where the magic happens”, lol.

Challenge yourself, because you can!

 

If you register on line you can select a cycle and cycle shoes for the ride, totally recommend the clip in shoes!

A quick stop in the changing room allowed me to notice ponytail holders, bobby pins and wipes, OK … nice touch! They do provide a locker, towel, water bottle and even offer fresh fruit on your way out, not kidding!

I can honestly say that was truly one of the best work outs I have had in a while. Inspired to push myself with the help of a great instructor by the name of Brittany who’s motto is “do it with passion or not at all“. 

The CycleTheatre is a tiered theatre holding up to 55 custom bikes, two larger-than-life flat-screen TVs, personal data monitors, and a state-of-the-art audio, video, and lighting technology that creates a multisensory experience.

I can’t imagine adding anything else that would make the ride that much more! The high tech stationary bike makes it easy to understand and less fumbling around to stay focused on the ride. Thank you at CycleBar for the experience.

I asked the group if they could describe CycleBar in one word and here we go … exuberant, intense, invigorating, sweaty, fun, rocking, enjoyable and amazing!

SATX Social Ride: Fit fun and my Bike.

 

SATX Social Ride

Fitness. Fun. Freedom.

I heard about this group of social bicyclists that would get together on Tuesday evenings to ride the streets of downtown San Antonio SATX Social Ride a little over a year ago. I met Yvette Hernandez who is one of the organizers and Ride Marshals and she invited me to take a ride. Yvette mentioned that they were on Facebook and that they would notify the group every week on the meet-up, the mileage and how much the course would challenge us on any given Tuesday and by challenges I mean hills.

I am totally social, I had a bike that was just sitting in my garage collecting dust, I was free on Tuesday nights and this “bike thing” sounded like a great way to burn some calories. It didn’t take me long to dust off my bike, put some air in my tires and find some friends willing to explore the city.

Ready. Set. Go.

We rode our first ride in 2015 with San Antonio Social Ride and we all still ride on any given Tuesday. It is the best ride in town! The wind in our hair and smiles on our faces. This “biking thing” has become near and dear to me and I am proud to say I am a member. Slow-rolls, hills, destination rides, theme rides, mural rides, rides for a cause and my all time favorite … biking to the spooky railroads tracks by the Missions during Halloween. Biking is freedom at it’s finest.

I was introduced to Jeff Moore who is the founder of SATX Social Ride and I just knew it would be a matter of time before I highlighted this group. Here is a quick Q & A with Mr. Moore, enjoy!

 How did you get into biking?

I started biking when I was about 5 like most kids in the 60’s and 70’s. I remember riding my bike to elementary school on the Eastside in all kinds of weather. I didn’t ride too much again until after college, when mountain biking was just getting popular.

I moved into a house close to downtown and began riding in the urban area in 2000. Downtown San Antonio was pretty empty of cyclists in those days.

How did the SATX Social Ride group evolve into what it is now?

I was riding from my house in Olmos Park Terrace with a few friends. Eventually a few others would join us and it became a crowd. I moved the starting and ending point to the Pearl parking lot in 2012. In 2013 I created a Facebook page and it grew from there. The first year we rode with 20 to 50 riders and kept it spontaneous. As the group grew so did our attention to safety and organization. It’s a complete team effort now that we regularly ride with over 250 cyclists.

What would you suggest for newbies wanting to try the group?

Wear a helmet, have lights on your bike and expect to have fun. Keep in mind that this is a social ride and not a race or workout. There’s no competition or ego needed on our rides. Definitely meet some new friends.

 Do’s and dont’s for cyclist?

Our biggest concern are cyclists who ride erratically and not predictably.

It’s important to realize that in a group there are cyclists all around you and it’s imperative to ride in a straight line. Don’t ride crazy and run someone off the road or clip someone’s front tire.

 Where do you see this group in 5 years?

We are currently forming a 501c3 (nonprofit) group. I want to make this a sustaining entity which carries on with the focus of safe social riding in the urban area.

We also support, and are actively involved, with many charitable and civic organizations. I’d like for this group to be an active force in making San Antonio known as a premier bike friendly city. That is a real challenge, but one that I think is possible.

Jeff Moore ~ SATX Social Ride Founder

 

This group is made up of many volunteers and on any given Tuesday they do their best to keep riders safe. They do ask very little of us bikers in return to make it a more enjoyable experience. Do your part to ride responsibly, courteously and legally. 

This to me is “Puro San Antonio” and I love it! You don’t have to be a professional to join or even have a friend to go with because you will walk away with many new ones and the most amazing feeling of “I did it”.

Make more of your life, Bicycle.

SATX Social Ride bike club is free to anyone, whether you choose to be added to the FB bike group or not, you are welcome to ride with us. It will be your responsibility to obey traffic laws and follow recommended safety precautions. The bike club is not responsible for any injuries, traffic citations, stolen/lost bikes or other personal belongings while participating ~ SATX Social Ride.

What are you waiting for?

Head for the Hills

Head to the Hills Ya’ll!

I couldn’t think of a better way to start my year than with a hiking challenge. Fitness outdoors is my preference. The hills and terrain are my treadmill and the elements are just part of the fun.

The more I wander the more I want to get lost in the trails. Not like really lost … just a little : ). The wildness that makes nature is will silence and stir ones soul to the core. I knew naturally growing up in Texas that parks and rivers were my happy. I kinda fell instantly in love with my outdoor surroundings and being able to revisit some of my favorite spots last year and share them with my family and friends was pure joy.

Life is meant to be a great adventure.

This week I completed my 3rd hike and my goal is 52 hikes by the end of 2017. Why … because I have officially joined the 52 Hike Challenge!

One hike a week for 52 weeks. My story to create, my life to live, my journey to take … I’m in! 

I do have many friends and family that have expressed interest in joining me on some of my adventures and lucky me. In Texas we are trailing and it’s only the beginning. Maybe you too will be inspired to take the challenge. What could you lose, or find … YOU?

Hike 1 at Government Canyon State Park in San Antonio. You can check out dinosaur tracks in Government Canyon! You can see over 200 tracks about 2.5 miles up the Joe Johnston Route, just past Marker #19. It’s a long hike, five miles round trip. Well worth it! Small fee to enter or free carload with your Texas State Park Pass.

Hike 2 was at Eisenhower Park in San Antonio. Free to park, free to enter! Free to have fun : ). This park is very dog friendly!

Hike 3 was at Jacob’s Well with a quick giddy up Old Baldy in Wimberley, TX. The great news is that when it’s not swimming season at Jacob’s Well you don’t pay to enter, to park or to play on the trails … yeehaw!

 Where you hike, be all there.

Fitfunand … go take a hike.

Fitness Fun with Get Fit SATX

Happy New Year!

 

It’s that time of the year … new hopes, new dreams and new resolutions.

One of the most popular resolutions is Health. It’s always at the top of my list … right next to happiness of course : ).

I love exploring different ways to stay fit all while having fun. The one constant in my life has been jogging. It’s the countless miles I’ve run that made me realize that I am capable of so much more. I am not the fastest runner out there but I cross the same finish line. This past December I ran my 24th Half Marathon in the rain with at least 7 miles in cold wet shoes. It just made my finisher medal all that much more rewarding.

Ask yourself, can I give more? The answer is usually Yes.

 

The running community is supportive and inspiring. I have trained with several running groups in the past and my personal favorite is GetFitSATX. You get your first week FREE! Athena & Joey Farias are the founders and Coaches that make up Get Fit SATX.  I met Athena at the local YMCA over 10 years ago. I remember her talking about training for the Boston Marathon and thinking “she’s crazy, who wants to run 26.2 miles and why so fast”, lol? I eventually got “crazy” myself and ran 26.2 miles too, haha.

Throughout the years I would see her at running events and although I wasn’t as fast she was, Athena was always supportive in cheering me on. That meant a lot and still does today. Athena and Joey have been able to combine healthy living through healthy eating and being physically active. Athena combines her personal experiences and formal knowledge to provide her athletes into achieving their personal best. I thought since fitness is on our brain why not share some great tips, advice and perhaps some motivation from one of San Antonio’s best, Coach Athena Farias. 

What inspired you into the fitness world?

Running gave me a way to cope with all the bad around me as a young girl. It saved my life! I wanted to be able to share how taking care of your physical health can impact your mental and emotional health in a positive way.

What is your most memorable achievement fitness goal?

My 50 mile trail run. I trained for 20 weeks and at least 6 of those weeks were in cold, wet weather. I remember one of my training runs was 26 miles. it was the most mentally challenging, my body was fine, my body didn’t hurt, my husband was there supporting and running with me, but for whatever reason my mind was weak. At the end of the run I just began crying and I couldn’t stop. It was like an internal flush because the very next day, I ran the strongest 20 miles ever!!

What is your best advice for someone who has never run or exercised but is looking to start?

Just get out there and do it. The only thing stopping you is YOU. Find something that you enjoy doing and do it! Grab a buddy too, to hold accountable.

Any do’s and dont’s while putting together fitness goals?

Do be very specific when setting goals for your health. For example, if your goal is to lose weight, have a number and have an end date. I will lose 10 pounds by Feb 28th.

Don’t be too hard on yourself … we are all human and we all may fall off the track, just remember to get back on track as soon as possible.

Easy tips on staying healthy while working out.

Drink water, it is the best thing you can do for yourself. Get the right gear for the activity you choose to do. Be sure to do a 5 minute warm up, a 5 minute cool down and a few stretches during your workout session. Don’t forget you can’t outrun or exercise a BAD diet!!

Latino Outdoors in Texas: Opt Outside/Vamos Outdoors

                 

 Will you go OUT with me?

Friedrich Wilderness Park

This year Latino Outdoors in Texas joined in on the movement … #OptOutside & #ViernesVerde!

Last year REI the nation’s largest consumer co-op and specialty outdoor retailer made the brilliant decision to close all of their stores (143 to be exact) and pay it’s 12,000 employees on the biggest shopping day of the year (Black Friday)! They basically said Opt Outside! Hike, bike, snowboard, camp, kayak … just go!  Well you don’t have to tell me twice : ).

                      On black Friday in Texas, we went Hiking!

Friedrich Wilderness Park

With some grant funding fom REI I knew exactly where I wanted to go for our 1st annual event in Texas. With over 10 miles of Hiking Trails Friedrich Wilderness Park in San Antonio,Texas was the chosen destination.

Friedrich Wilderness Park Facts:

  • The park was developed with a grant from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and was dedicated on August 31, 1978.
  • The park is in the transition zone between the flat South Texas region and the Texas Hill Country.
  • It is internationally known for bird watching, with nesting sites for two federal listed endangered species of birds: the Black-capped Vireo and the Golden-cheeked Warbler.
  • Handicapped accessible trails.
  • No Fires and no smoking.
  • To protect the endangered species … Pedestrians only! (no pets)

Friedrich Wilderness Park

It’s moments like this. In Nature we Nuture the soul.

 

The weather was perfect, the smiles were endless and the talks on the trails were heartfelt. You could sense the confidence building! We had a wonderful guide Nicole who shared her wealth of knowledge on the plants and wildlife at Friedrich.

Friedrich Wilderness Park

  Latino Outdoors In Texas.

 

I wanted the 1st Annual Vamos Outdoors/Opt Ouside event to be successful. I wanted my group to be inspired and excited to be outdoors. The event was to share and showcase the beauty that is nature. Hiking locally and finding a great park to get lost in together was just the start for us. We made memories and then captured it on canvas. Art in the park : ).  

 

Latino Outdoors at Friedrich Park

The importance of the day was spending quality time Outside and we did just that! In San Antonio we represented proudly and fearlessly.

A park, a picnic, some painting, and for dessert … Pan dulce (sweet bread)!
