Father’s Day!

Happy Tuesday! I apologize for the delayed Father’s Day post I was busy creating a NEWtrition facebook page. Become a fan here!

I have mentioned multiple times how my Dad is in great shape! Ever since I was a little girl my Dad has always been an active runner and a cyclist. After participating in two Chicago marathons, he retired from running and took a more active approach in cycling. 

He is a member of Colavita Chicagoland and actively participates in rides 3 days a week- especially on the weekends. His team is pictured on the right. My Dad is in there somewhere with his helmet hair! lol

Like my Mom, my Dad has also been my inspiration to stay active and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Colavita has not only helped my Dad stay in shape but it is his stress release and social network. My Dad enjoys getting on his bike and going for a long ride with his cycling buddies. He looks forward to the spring and summer more than anyone so he can get up at 5:30am, hit the pavement and watch the sun rise! 

On Father’s Day, my Dad started his day off going on a tough ride with his Colavita group. Since he was exhausted from the morning ride he wanted to have a relaxing Father’s Day.  
What could be better than Botanic Gardens? It was a beautiful day!

 I LOVE flowers… the pink rose on the right is my favorite!
For dinner, we grilled up some awesome eats in my parent’s backyard…

Food preparation pictured above:

Happy Father’s Day to the best Dad I could ever ask for and so much more!
