You must go to Gatorland

Took the family to Gatorland in Orlando today, and here’s the thing about Gatorland – you need to go. No, seriously, whatever it is that you have planned in the Orlando area the next time you come around, you need to just go ahead and shuffle that around and make a trip to Gatorland.  If […]

Milestones

Two milestones crept up on me this week.  I wasn’t paying attention, I guess, and both came as a surprise. On Monday morning, I crossed over the 1,000 mile threshold in total miles run.  That’s since I started in November of 2012, with the vast majority of those miles in 2013.  I got to about […]
