Ironman is coming to Wilmington

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.

2014 Quintiles Wrightsville Beach Half Marathon

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.

North end of Carolina Beach

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.

Lewis Farms Upick Strawberries

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.
