🌊 Water you doin’ this week?

WATER YOU DOIN’ THIS WEEK? Hopefully it’s as fun as this!
(📸: @briangorun)

Ever want to put a little extra pep into your week? One fun way to do it: hang out with the folks behind the November Project, a free workout group that’s all about melting the Seattle Freeze.

“This was my morning before 7:15 a.m. We didn’t have any fun at the @nov_project_sea workout this morning,” group leader Brian Fisher wrote on Instagram. “Just like we didn’t go swimming. Both of these statements are true. 🤥”

Sound like something up your alley? Join the fun at 6:29 a.m. (yup — in the morning!) every Wednesday at Gas Works Park and every Friday at Golden Gardens.

Now let’s help you make some plans…

Today’s the last day to register online to participate in King County’s upcoming August 7 primary election — and it should just take a few minutes! If you miss today’s deadline, you’ll have to go to the county election office in person by July 30 to get it done.

Want to know what’s on the ballot? The county has this handy guide.

Get those registration forms in, all. And kudos to everyone who’s shared out a deep down honest question about homelessness in Seattle. Get your questions in by noon today, then stay tuned for tomorrow’s newsletter.
