When was the last time you strapped on a pair of roller skates or inlines? If you can't remember, it's been too long! October is National Roller Skating Month , so get outside or visit your local rink . Once you do, you will remember how much fun it is to skate. And you won't even realize you're burning around 350-550 calories every single hour. It's a fun way to burn off all those snack size candy bars you know you'll be eating this Halloween!
