Stay Cool For The Summer.

Recently, a guy in California defied all kinds of odds when he shattered the skateboarding speed record by hitting 89.41 miles per hour on a downhill run. It’s something he never could have achieved by staying indoors.

He’s also something of an inspiration, and someone you should think back on when you’re finding it hard to be motivated to leave the house on a weeknight. There’s so many things you can’t do by staying at home indoors.
