Baltimore Social leagues started as a way to get together with friends, play some bocce or skeeball and grab a drink or a bite to eat to catch up afterward. As city dwellers know from all of the groups in matching T-shirts walking around, however, the leagues have grown to feature multiple sports in multiple cities. And at the same time, fouder Giovanni Marcantoni and his team have gotten organizing friendly sports down to a science. So as Marcantoni considered how to address a need for more youth leagues in Baltimore City, he eventually realized that he was already in a place to do so. Read More →

Since many of us in Baltimore live with traffic, noise and concrete, all this talk about “the environment” can seem far away. Not relevant even. Yet, within a short drive, we can find ourselves in beautiful, natural surroundings.
Recently, my family and I found ourselves in just that setting while canoeing down the Deer Creek on an Eden Mill Family Canoe trip. Consider booking a canoe trip – it’s a fun activity that also offers an ideal spot to talk with the kids about how connected we really are to our environment and nature.
Weekly Wellness Tip
When exercising you commonly move from front to back, but how much thought do you give to moving side-to-side? Moving side-to-side is a lateral movement that engages your hip abductor muscles.
These muscles help you walk, run, play sports, balance on one foot, dance, get into and out of a car and get onto and off a bicycle. Bottom line, they improve functional fitness, enhance core stability and prevent injuries.
Exercises that strengthen your hip abductor muscles include side-lying leg raises, standing side leg raises, side step-ups, balancing on one leg, and side steps with or without a resistance band.

Quote of the Week:

Charm City got a bit of good news with its recent “5-STAR” sustainability rating from the non-profit Star Communities. This non-profit’s mission is to assess and then rate a city’s environment, economy, and the well-being if its residents. Only Seattle and Massachusetts’s City of Northampton have won the highest 5-STAR rating. You could take this honor with a grain of salt given our town’s recent events–but it’s useful to note that the sustainability rating system examines not only governmental efforts, but also community partnerships.
