I've been a part of this race for at least the past 5 years as either a participant or a volunteer. I'm super excited to see that Ironman has taken over the race and will be able to make it even better than it was. And, it will only help bring better exposure to Wilmington with having such a top-notch world class event here.

Some days I run for fun. Some days I run for competition. Some days I run just because. This race was all about having fun for me. I've struggled the past few times I ran the Wrigthsville Beach Half Marathon and just wanted to enjoy this one. I rarely run with headphones any more but decided to put on some music and have that help me. Little did I know what was waiting for me at the finish line. This was, without a doubt, the best finish I have ever had. No matter how fast or slow I finished it in.

The north end of Carolina Beach is the home of Freeman Park. With the right car, or I should say Jeep or truck, you can drive out on the beach for a fun filled day at the beach or camp out overnight. There are bathrooms in two different locations throughout the park and it stretches all the way to the inlet that separates Carolina Beach and Masonboro Island. If you ever want to drive out there, let me know. I'm happy to go out there as often as possible.

Even when it's gray and muddy, it's still a blast to go to Lewis Farms and pick strawberries. Granted, it's fun too when it's sunny out but a little mud shouldn't stop you from going. If you've never been out there, it's certainly something you need to add to your list of things to do in Wilmington when the strawberries are in season.

The 2012 PPD Beach 2 Battleship Triathlon was another great experience. After participating in the relay earlier in the day, I headed to the Without Limits Coaching aide station which was at RM 2, 11, 15 and 24 of the run course. I took this video around 10:00 PM to show the true grit that these incredible athletes have in finishing this fantastic race. If you've never been to a triathlon, come on down to Wilmington NC to watch this race or the many others that are here.
