The Best Fitness and Foodie Events in Philly This Month: August 2016

And speaking for myself, usually, on any given August day, sweating more is the last thing I want to do. So making a point to fill up my fitness calendar is a must — otherwise I will spend the entire month splayed out on my couch with a pint of Little Baby’s Vegan Iced Tea ice cream resting on my belly.
