Operated by Silicon Valley Sports & Entertainment, the parent company of the NHL's San Jose Sharks, Sharks Ice skating centers professionally maintain solid-water rinks and facilities to accommodate a full range of activities. Each Friday night (7:30–9:30 p.m. in San Jose; 7:15–9:15 p.m. in Oakland) customers have full run of the centers' Olympic-sized rinks for public skating and fashionable displays of warm, Cosby-inspired outerwear. In addition to skating amenities, each Sharks Ice center features a full-service pro shop that sells NHL athletic apparel and other skate supplies and accessories. The centers also feature public snack bars and spacious public areas for socializing and frigid recitations of 18th-century Russian poetry. Sharks Ice San Jose also houses Stanley's Sports Bar, a full bar and restaurant overlooking the three rinks. Skate rental is included, but if you prefer to bring your own foot-blades, the general admission price without today's Groupon is $8, which still makes the Groupon the better deal. Hours are subject to change, so please call ahead to confirm.

On Sunday, February 24, runners get up at the crack of dawn to embark on a journey through downtown Niles, which begins at 7:30 a.m. The flat courses send participants snaking in and out of the bustling streets and along the lakes of the Bay Area burg. During both the half marathon and the 5K, supporters line the courses, cheering on the runners with shouts of encouragement and signs reminding them to never run from their problems. In the 12 weeks leading up to the races, a running coach from Stanford University leads free training sessions for runners of all levels. This helps athletes perfect their times so they can have something to celebrate at the finish-line party.

JM Performance Horse’s instructor, Justin Mott, grew up in the company of horses at his family’s ranch, first taking up reins at the age of 3. About eight years later, Mott handled his first horse in training. This experience prompted Mott to sharpen his understanding of natural horsemanship and study the works of Tom Dorrance, who emphasized the feel of the horse and its interplay with the handler. Today, Mott works upon the verdant hills and pastures of Sheridan Equestrian Center, training both horses and humans. In classes designed for students of all skill levels, the seasoned rider strengthens connections between man and beast while teaching posture, commands, and proper U-turn technique.

At the San Jose location, visitors can cool off in the warmer months with a trip down parallel outdoor waterslides.
