And if you feel like stopping along the way, here are some fun for the whole family stops to check out along Highway 101. Read More…

And while many of us choose that activity to be surfing, biking, jogging, swimming or some other leisurely pursuit, some San Diegan’s like to push their competitive limits by participating in one (or many) of the numerous races that are held throughout San Diego each year.

As an avid mud runner myself, I’m excited to be taking on my 3rd Super Spartan Race at the end of the month.
