#VentisWinterChallenge week two is here!  We have another fun giveaway for you and tips for family focused fitness in downtown Salem.  Conrad and Kari Venti love urban adventures with their four kiddos in downtown Salem.  From Conrad:

We love to adventure in Salem!  Running and biking in various forms is our go-to family fitness activity all year around.  I run with our youngest kiddos (3) in the BOB jogging stroller and Kari and the older three kiddos ride their bikes.  Winter takes a little more planning with rain coats, rain pants, boots, hats, gloves and headlamps, but once you get in the habit, you can plan to have all the gear ready at a moments notice.  Salem has amazing parks in the central core.  Our favorite run/bike course starts at Roth’s in West Salem, heads through Wallace Marine Park, Riverfront Park, Mill Race, and to Willamette University.  We’ll usually end at Venti’s downtown for food + drinks and then run/bike back to the car at Roth’s. Check out our Strava map and course details right here: https://www.strava.com/routes/7309129

Including fitness into family outings can happen year around in Oregon.  Gear up, hit the bike/run downtown or find a trail in one of our amazing parks for a short urban hike.

This week’s giveaway is a Venti’s 24oz Hydroflask (insulated bottle) and a Venti’s sticker pack.  To enter this week, click this link to our Facebook post, leave a comment and tell us your favorite Salem park!  A winner will be selected randomly Monday, January 7th.
