I did a thing today

Hi! It’s been awfully quiet around here lately. It looks like my last post was over a year ago. Oops. But alas, it feels like the time to write is here, so here I am. Ready to start over in the blogosphere. 🙂

So, today I did a thing. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while. I’ve put it off long enough and today felt like the right day for it. It has been in the back of my mind for so long. Do you ever have that? When you think of something you want, but it gets buried by the things you feel you have to do, that the things you want to do just fade away? Please tell me I’m not alone here!

And I could not be happier. The opportunity to run a beautiful course with a bunch of friends is something I will cherish forever. But enough about me, let’s see why this is a race you should do too!

Get to Adventure Island – Tampa

Disclaimer: As a Busch Gardens ambassador, my family was invited to visit Adventure Island. We received four free day passes in exchange for this review. I was not compensated monetarily for this review. All opinions are my own based on my experience.

This was my first visit to Adventure Island in Tampa. Yep, the last time I went to a water park was close to five years ago when we went to Aquatica for my niece’s birthday. The girls were so young, and it was overwhelming to say the least having two toddlers running in opposite directions. So I figured now that they were older, I would be able to relax a little and enjoy.
