Summer is officially here -- and it's not for the faint of heart. Given the 90 degree-plus temperatures hanging over Miami this weekend, it's likely you sweated out a good five pounds or so hitting the beach, lounging at the pool, and chilling on patios. Good thing you were constantly re-hydrating with copious quantities of beer.
Now it's Monday, so you've got five days of air-conditioned office space to look forward to. But once the cool, comfortable indoors start to wear on you, there's plenty of fun stuff to do this week -- all of it outdoorsy.
