Fitness Friendly Girls' Weekend in West Virginia

I had my first visit to West Virginia when I went to see my good friend for some much over-due girl time. I arrived on Friday afternoon and we kicked off our weekend with some manis and pedis. Since the weekend would be full of new adventures, we fueled up with some gluten-free pizza and vino!

On Saturday we drove to Blackwater Falls State Park. The park offers lots of hiking trails and scenic overlooks. We decided to do the Lindy Point Trail. It was a beautiful trail with rhododendrons flanking both sides.

Just before leaving for WV, the FlipBelt I won from Fairytales and Fitness arrived. It was perfect for storing my phone during the hike. My friend liked it so much she ordered one for herself and her mom!

The overlook -

215 steps down to view the Blackwater Falls.

On Sunday we drove to West Virginia University's Outdoor Education Center in Morgantown for some zip lining. After a brief summary of the course and filling out paperwork, the instructors got us into our harnesses and took us through a mini-lesson on the how-tos of zip lining.

For the next two hours, we zipped...

walked across a sky bridge...

and rappelled.

Zip lining is a total body workout. Between hanging on to the bars (arms) and holding up your legs (core) and hiking (legs), we were worn out…but still smiling!

Have you been on any outdoor adventures lately?
