2015 Marine Corps Half Marathon

For as long as I’ve been a runner, I’ve been told that the one race you want to avoid running in Jax is the Marine Corps Half. Not just from one person, but from nearly every single person I know that has run it in the past.  The main complaints are the terrible weather (it’s hot and humid!) and that the end of the course is brutal.  You run up a pedestrian bridge, over the rail road tracks, then have to run down a spiral ramp.  Then you run, in full sun, along the river.  That part sounds nice, but not when it’s 85 degrees in full sun!

2015 Run Rabbit Run 5K

Because we didn’t have enough crammed into the already busy Easter weekend, Adam and I decided to do the Run Rabbit Run 5K with some of our friends. I heard so many good things about the race last year, so I was eager to sign up. The course starts at the entrance to Queens Harbor Yacht & Country Club and you run along the neighborhood streets. It wasn’t at all congested and the scenery is gorgeous (especially if you’re like me and love looking at big, beautiful houses!). READ MORE

2015 Gate River Run 15K

The 2015 Gate River Run 15K.. aka the really fun race in Jacksonville that was really freaking hot this year!  Not that it really mattered to me, since I didn’t have a time goal this year.  In fact, I went into this race determined to have fun and not stress over time so I made it my goal to PR in drink stops.  Spoiler Alert – I totally hit my goal!

Review & Giveaway: Earth Fare Jacksonville

If you’re like me, there’s a good chance that you’ve never heard of Earth Fare.  I didn’t even know that they were coming to Jacksonville until I received an email asking if I’d like to come in and take a sneak peek at their store.  After checking out their website, I was eager to head over and see what they had to offer!  Actually, a better way to look at it is what they do NOT offer: READ MORE

Mackenzie is Three!

I know I say this a lot, but I’m not sure how this happened. My sweet baby girl is growing up way too fast. Mackenzie is three and I feel like she should still be itty-bitty and all snuggled up in my lap.  Thankfully, she still loves to snuggle. I’ll be one sad mama the day my babies decide they’re too old to snuggle with me. READ MORE

2014 Gate River Run 15K

Ohh look, I’m finally recapping the 2014 Gate River Run, it’s about time since the race was in mid-March!  Last year was the first time I ran the Gate River Run.  It’s a HUGE event in Jacksonville, it seems like everyone in our running community runs it.  This year, if I remember correctly, there were just under 20,000 runners and walkers. It’s hard for me to visualize that many people.. maybe it is for you too? This should help.. this is the Main Street Bridge in downtown Jax. READ MORE
