#ygkChallenge: Embrace Winter

Heart, month, February, stroke, foundation, ygk, kingstonist, challenge, lifestyleWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Enjoy some winter fun. This week’s challenge is for all the folks who have had enough of the cold and snow (I’m with you!)  Let’s face it, it’s here and it’s probably going to stay for a little while longer, so why not make the most of it?  Not every winter gives us this much of the white stuff and I hear there are actually some pretty fun things you can do in the snow.  This week, bundle up and get outside for some wintry fun.  Head to Market Square for a skate, go to Little Cat and take a snow shoe or cross country ski lesson.  Lemoine Point is a great place for a winter hike and there are numerous other skating rinks in parks around town.  Or keep it even simpler and build a snowman on your front lawn or in a nearby park.  The best part of going outside in the winter is coming back in and sitting by a fire with a hot chocolate (or something a bit stronger), and it’s much more satisfying if you’ve raised your heart rate a little.

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines. Further, help us spread the word via Twitter and Facebook by using the hashtag: #ygkchallenge.
