Summer is right around the corner. Are you ready for swimsuits, short shorts, tank tops, and flip flops?

I know I'm not. I've been slacking a little bit lately when it comes to working out. Sometimes I need a reason. An end goal. Well here are 11 reasons to get your booty to the gym. These races are coming to the Rockford area this Spring and Summer. And you can sign up now.
