I visited a popular local park with my boys today. At noon ~75% of visitors disappeared in line with the 12:05 Patriots/Broncos kick-off. A few years ago, I climbed the tallest peak at Lake Tahoe (Mt Freel) on Super Bowl weekend. The roads were empty, so we avoided the usual Bay Area/Tahoe ski traffic.
Spending time outdoors is ideal during a major sporting event when folks are glued to their television. The outdoors are empty. The roads are car free. Instead of passively watching professional athletes run around on a field, you get to be an active participant exploring the mountains, coasts, or forests. You’re shedding pounds calories versus gaining them.
Super Bowl 50 is February 7 in Santa Clara, CA. Catch the highlights on SportsCenter. Pack some guacamole in your backpack and enjoy it during a crowd free outdoor adventure.
