While I like to adventure, I'm a big fan of doing it safely. When Jim Cantore tells me to stay inside and away from window, I like to do it. But for Hurricane Dorian, I had to go out and do my job.

Unlike many runners, I count my runversary -- anniversary of when I started running as an adult -- by my first race. It was the Parent's Place 5K, a hilly course that I ran in a little over 36 minutes.

Across the street from the newspaper's office, is the Cupola House, a historic structure that includes two beautiful gardens. The biggest one is the The Frances … Continue reading SOMA: Cupola House gardens

This time, we were a little bit better prepared for kicking off an Edenton … Continue reading New appreciation for Steamers
We're busy kicking up dust on a new adventure. I hope to have more news after April 1. So, for now, enjoy a few recent photos I took.

The never-ending cycle is now coupled with the wacky weather -- cold one day, warm a few days later. … Continue reading Taking photos while rucking
I expanded a column I wrote for a local weekly newspaper for Memorial Day.
