The third annual Atlanta Moon Ride is a 6.5-mile bike ride along a route that is closed to motorized traffic and the 100 percent of the proceeds supports Bert’s Big Adventure, a local nonprofit that provides all-expenses-paid trips to Disney World for kids with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families.

It’s crazy hot in Atlanta, and while I’m loving summertime with my kiddos, I’m ready for some relief. We’re hitting the pool as much as possible, but we thought these fun popsicles could help beat the heat even more!

They were all so delicious and refreshing!  Let us know which one is your favorite or share your own concoction.

Cool treats, this way… >>

You could pack up your gear and head to air conditioned comfort, but outdoor exercise is great for you and the heat itself can actually have some benefits too. Higher temps can improve your flexibility — thus the popularity of hot yoga studios — and some studies have shown that hot-weather training may lead to even greater gains than high-altitude training for elite athletes. If you’re going to sweat it out this summer, be safe about it with these tips for scorching summer workouts…
