Spring and summertime are finally returning to Madison.
That means time for all sorts of outdoors and exercise
for people who are into those sorts of things. And for 
everyone else, indoor exercise remains a lovely temperature-
controlled alternative. Here's a video brimming with motivation
both for physical fitness and for taking on LIFE!

Does this mean there are at least 8 more driving around somewhere?!

Fun fact: it is surprisingly cheap to have personalized license plates in Wisconsin,
