TOL – Married to a Non-Runner

I’m married to a non-runner. Actually it didn’t use to be that way, after all he is the one who got me started. You see my husband and a friend got this idea they wanted to start running.  So peer pressure got the best of me. Ok, me too….  (Yea, right……WT? was I thinking???) Running was hard, really hard.  We started out with the couch to 5k.  My husband would run off and leave me and I could not keep {Read More}

Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores, AL Review

Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores, AL. RV Park Review This is a review of the Gulf State Park Campground in Gulf Shores, AL. I must say I feel like I just scratched the surface of this great park and all it has to offer. A weekend is not near enough time to really enjoy it and I believe this won’t be our last time to visit this park either! Back in September 2014 in fact right after we purchased {Read More}

Thinking Out Loud #9 5.14.15

Think Out Loud #9 5.14.15 I know some of you are just starting your marathon and half marathon season, and I’m so jealous of you. Ours is for the most part over.  🙁  I’m sad too.  Now there may be one here or there within 250 or so miles but not really doable for me.  The one that is in my state is on a date I just don’t see how I can make. On a lighter note, guess what? {Read More}

Insane Inflatable 5k

INSANE INFLATABLE 5K This is my recap of the Insane Inflatable 5k in Tuscaloosa, AL on April 25, 2015.

My husband doesn’t like running much but this {Read More}
