Day 5 – Mobile, Alabama – 2014 Running Trip

Thursday brought with it my first trip to Mobile, Alabama, a city rich with history. Mobile was settled by the French in 1702 and has flown under six flags: French, Spanish, British, Republic of Alabama, Confederacy, and United States. I also learned that Mobile is the rainiest city in America, with more than five feet…

Day 4 – New Orleans, Louisiana – 2014 Running Trip

Of all the cities on my itinerary for the 2014 running trip, I was most excited to visit New Orleans. One of America’s most unique cities, it is an experience like no other. I visited New Orleans for the first time a year after Hurricane Katrina. At the time, the city was still in shock….

Day 3 – Houston, Texas – 2014 Running Trip

Umm. Houston is huge. A few weeks back, I received notice from Megabus that my bus time from San Antonio to Houston had been pushed back three hours from an 8am departure to 11am and arriving in Houston at 2:30pm. Not a huge deal, but given the fact that my Houston run was shaping up…

Day 2 – San Antonio, Texas – 2014 Running Trip

After a glorious evening in the Austin Airstream, it was time to head to San Antonio, Texas for my second running day of the trip. After packing up and catching a ride on Austin’s bus system to campus, I arrived with enough time to grab a bite to eat and catch my good old friend…

Day 1 – Austin, Texas – 2014 Running Trip

The 2014 running trip is here, and after months of planning and a lackluster effort to get back into running shape, it’s go time. My last trip occurred in early 2013, so it’s felt like years since I was back on the road doing my running thing. Like past years, I’ve spent the last few…

If I’m Not Back In An Hour, Come Find Me

The title of this post is a phrase that can be heard often around our house. While it’s generally stated tongue in cheek, the phrase itself actually has some very frightening undertones. While I still consider myself to be in my youth, and with this comes more risk and less thinking, I’ve recently started to…

5 Really Annoying Things That Runners Do

One of my personal rules for life is to laugh at myself. Often. We are all ridiculous human beings, and I personally enjoy being in the upper echelon of this category. Runners are an interesting breed. Our prideful behavior seems normal to us, but annoying to many. Let’s be honest. That being said, I present…

4.1 Miles in Tampa, Florida with Gabbie Rimmaudo

Don’t Let Running Get In The Way Of Reading – The Run-n-Read

There’s never enough time. Each one of us is faced with decisions each day that determine how we spend our 24 hours. Often, time constraints can be frustrating, knowing that there aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything you want to do. This constraint forces us to leave many things that we want…
