New to this game? It’s pretty simple, every Tuesday in March, from 4-7pm you can head to the local landmark with a solid pair of sneakers and get your workout on using the 802 stairs that climb the tower. Admission for the challenge is only $10, which gets you a workout that is not in a gym and some great insta-worthy pics from the top!

It’s the last month to get up close with the King penguins at the @calgaryzoo as the flightless birds take their daily stroll through the park. If you’ve missed it this year, you want to get down this month for the best giggle you will have all year. Hang out with the penguins as they explore, exercise, and waddle their way around the zoo. Of course, this wander is of their own free-will, so if the lil guys are feeling lazy or it’s too cold, they won’t do it… but these guys know they are a star attraction and they like their admirers, so they tend to go for their daily wander. Take the day off, take the kids, and have a good afternoon with the penguins before their walkabouts end for the year!
