Upcoming Events!

Hello everyone!

Happy Saturday night!  What a great start to the weekend: I saw AVATAR (finally!) in 3D with Zack last night and it was simply amazing!  What an incredible visual display and great story – I just hope people pick up on the not-so-subtle environmental messages throughout the movie.  It almost felt like the planet was an underwater world filled with sea anemones and soft corals (that’s the scuba diver side of me coming out).

Today, I went up to San Rafael with Morgan to shake our tailfeathers with Efren (a fellow Zumba Instructor) at his free class at this gorgeous dance studio in Marin.  And the Wall Street Journal was there doing an article on fitness happiness (ooh, maybe we’ll be famous!)  I always love meeting new instructors in the area and taking their classes (always good to “steal” great ideas too!)

Then, I had a coffee date at Philz (yum! philtered soul all the way), which felt like talking to a long-lost sister-friend.  All in all, a great start to the weekend!

Just don’t forget an EXTRA Zumba class tomorrow morning at 9am at 24 Hour Fitness Potrero!!  We will rock it!
