On Saturday mornings in Noe Valley, everyone is in their active wear pushing their strollers, going for runs, taking a spin class at Cardio Tone, or doing boot camps in the park. Jesse usually plays pick-up basketball on Saturdays, so I either head to the gym or meet friends for coffee and a walk. 

With the first day of summer officially here, I think it's time for me to kick my workouts into high gear. I needed some inspiration and motivation, so of course I turned to fitness guru and perfect pal, Barbara. I asked her to share her workout playlist with all of us. Hopefully if we listen to the same music, our bodies will turn out like Barbara's!!!!
