For some of the Cruiser ladies, the OBX Half Marathon was a race eleven months in the making. I started our race story with my post, But First, We Had To Have A Birthday Party, last week when I explained that the idea of running this particular race first came about at a Christmas party […]

After spending two weeks – well, thirteen days to be exact – at our family beach house on the Outer Banks, I decided to sort through my many pictures and share some of my favorites. Today’s post is short on words, but long in pictures! Enjoy!   Sissy, my hilarious little plant, traveled with us […]

I’m in the 6th week of my 16-week Run Less Run Faster (affiliate link) training cycle for my OBX Half Marathon, but with yesterday’s Shenandoah Half I feel like I should be wrapping it up. What I set out to run simply as an easy long training run, I ended up racing, but more on that later […]

Giving Back To The Outer Banks

A couple of Sundays ago, just a few days after arriving on the Outer Banks, Bill volunteered with the Carova Volunteer Fire and Rescue. Once back at the beach house, he suggested writing a short guest post about his experience. Without further ado, here’s Bill…   Even if you have been to the Outer Banks of […]

Weekly Running Recap With A Little Sand Thrown In

It’s hard for me to believe that it’s time for another weekly running recap, but being on vacation has all of my days running together! Last week’s runs included time on asphalt, concrete, sand, and a boardwalk.  My legs would have loved for all of my runs to be on the boardwalk, but a girl’s […]

Running Along Route 12, Without Getting Killed

Fitting our long run in while on vacation at the beach is never a problem.  Deciding just where to run it is… Yesterday we decided to try running along Route 12 so we would have a consistent running surface, and a change in scenery.  Running along the shore at low tide is beautiful, but the […]
