Get Glowing: Celebrate Confidence & Fitness at Boston's lucy Light Forest, October 3 – 13

That feel-good, confident vibe you get from working out – what would it look like if you could see it? Answer: Over 10,000 twinkling LED lights illuminating Boston’s Esplanade trail – a hot spot for the city’s joggers.

Okay, so maybe not exactly like that, but that’s what we saw as we walked through this solar-powered scene to the lucy Light Forest opening celebrations last night.


Created to celebrate movement and the women who love it, this ten-day event kicked off with a party aboard the Charles Riverboat (Boston’s own private charter and sightseeing boat on the Charles River), complete with sushi, fresh seafood, and plenty of drinks to go around. We mingled among women involved with the brand and met a Pilates instructor, Hanneke, who will be teaching classes along the river over the next week and a half.

If you’re in the Boston area and haven’t already seen the glowing trail on the Esplanade, go check it out for yourself – it’s worth it. And if you prefer group exercise to jogging, head down to the Hatch Shell (the city’s outdoor riverside concert venue) October 7 – 13 for free classes – yes, really – taught by some of Boston’s best instructors. Just remember to bring your mat and some water. Then get ready to work.
