Winter Southeast Coast Trip: Day Seven

– Charleston, South Carolina to Columbus, Georgia – The coolest thing we did today doesn’t include any photographs. It was, of course, our run across the Ravenel Bridge in Charleston. We were up before the sun (which is like 6:30 in winter) and out of our hotel shortly after so we could make it across…

Winter Southeast Coast Trip: Day Six

– Savannah, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina – It rained a lot today. And our run was lame because the park we picked turned out not to allow dogs on the running path. With this, the lack of sidewalks, and the fatty and sweet foods at Whole Foods last night, my opinion of Savannah couldn’t…

Winter Southeast Coast Trip: Day Five

– Kingsland, Georgia to Savannah, Georgia – Since our run this morning would’ve been another lame run through residential streets, and we had planned two rest days into our trip, we decided not to run this morning. Instead, we lounged in bed and played on our phones after we woke up. It was nice to…

Winter Southeast Coast Trip: Day Four

– Jacksonville, Florida to Kingsland, Georgia – If we had driven straight from our hotel this morning to our hotel for tonight, it would take 50 minutes. Luckily, we filled quite a bit more time than that with our coastal explorations today, despite the fact that it was a holiday and all of the national…

Winter Southeast Coast Trip: Day Three

– Fort Walton Beach, Florida to Jacksonville, Florida – We did a little better today. Yay! We got up at 6:30am for our run, which wasn’t anywhere great, as I mentioned yesterday. It’s been flooding a bit around here, so not only was our trail a little short, but it was flooded out in places….

Winter Southeast Coast Trip: Day Two

– Beaumont, Texas to Fort Walton Beach, Florida – Well, I bet you can tell from the featured image that today did not turn out to be a very interesting day. It was always going to be a driving day, but we had hoped to see a little more on our way. Unfortunately, it was…

Winter Southeast Coast Trip: Day One

– Denton, Texas to Beaumont, Texas – Well, Christmas is over. And Mark and I had our birthday, too (yes, it is the same day). You know what that means. It’s road trip time. Winter road trips are a lot of fun when the weather holds, and to continue our trend of traveling east in…

New Zealand Trip: Day Eight

– Auckland, New Zealand to Denton, Texas – Well, we are finally home. The trip total for this thing is hilarious: 22,690 miles by plane, car, and boat. Denton has never looked so great as it does tonight. I was even grateful to see the post-Thanksgiving traffic. We were up at the crack of dawn…

New Zealand Trip: Day Seven

– Twizel, New Zealand to Auckland, New Zealand – Well, there’s not a lot of good things in Twizel, as we discovered this morning. There weren’t any running trails, so we had to run along the road and by the grocery stores. Someone in a car kept shouting at us on the sidewalk as they…

New Zealand Trip: Day Six

– Queenstown, New Zealand to Twizel, New Zealand – Alas. Today was our last day in Queenstown. This morning we had to pack up all of our stuff to move on to our next temporary home. It’s our last full day of our trip, too, since tomorrow we fly from Christchurch back up to Auckland…
