What do reggae, wine, and goats have in common? They’re all mash-ups with fitness happening this May in Pittsburgh. Funny, we know. But we’re totally serious.

And while there will be some Pittsburgh gray skies and a couple torrential downpours, our fingers are crossed for clear skies for the return of Yoga in the Square, Open Streets PGH, the Pittsburgh Marathon, and much more.
