Temporary summer insanity and a lofty goal

After too many days straight of painting, we dropped out brushes yesterday and headed out to the beach for some much-needed rest and relaxation.

Since we last left off, we have been to Durham, NC, Charlottesville, VA and Washington, DC. We have toured Monticello, a few universities and museums. My feet hurt....more

Runs worth the drive

Most of us like to hit the pavement right outside of our front door each day because our time is limited....more

Back to the hot pavement

I am back to grinding out the miles on hot pavement in South Carolina for a few days. These runs on the beach are now a distant memory....more

More morning runs and a sweet situation

This is the inlet that I run to every morning....more

My version of fun

I am the sort of vacationer who pops up out of bed at 6 a.m. and can’t wait to get outside too see what the day will bring....more
