Museum of Man

During our many runs and walks through Balboa Park, the Mr. and I have often admired the beautiful exterior and resonant bell tower of the Museum of Man.  So this past week we decided it was time to stop running by, and pop in for a visit. The museum is very cute and has lots […]

Rave Run: Balboa Park

I love changing up my runs, but time and time again, my go to run is in Balboa Park.  The park itself is beautiful – filled with palm trees, flowers, and amazing architecture.  I feel like I notice something new every time I go for a run.  There are also so many different routes and […]

Go, Go, Go Car!

If you live in San Diego, then there’s a pretty good chance that you’ve seen these snappy little Go Car’s racin’ around town. These 3 wheeled scooter meets go-carts are such a fun way to tour San Diego, even for locals like us.  We felt a bit like we had our own Gadgetmobile, or KITT…our […]
