To celebrate the second weekend of August, our readers spent a lot of time in the great outdoors running 5Ks, riding bikes on the beach, and spending some (well-earned, no doubt) downtime with their families in the sun.
In case you forgot, the premise of "Best Weekend Ever" is that as much as we look forward to the weekend, it's also fun on a Monday to look back on the amazing couple of days you just had and appreciate that time.
Enjoy this week's images, and keep your phone or camera handy next weekend -- snap a picture and send it to email@example.com. We'll feature it here on Monday's Best Weekend Ever slideshow, and add our favorite weekly submission to our "Best Weekend Ever" Pinterest Board.
