Turkey day has passed and just as many of us will soon be knee deep in snow, we’re all knee deep in the holiday season. For many warm weathered athletes, that means one thing: the offseason. This is a perfect time to trade training plans for holiday treats and swap some of that time working out for quality time with family. Conveniently, UnTapped transcends the offseason and makes an easy way to spread the maple love to all your friends and loved ones. Here are a few ideas to get you started…
It may be the offseason, but it is never to early to start prepping your UnTapped stock for the coming season.
