Hawaiian shirt night was the perfect game for me. I got a very cool shirt (literally) and I got to see back-to-back Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer pitch and hit a double. The #nats beat the Marlins 8-2 #Washington #Nationals #nats #MaxScherzer #max #mlb #basesball #hawaiianshirt #masn #masnnationals #alohashirt #aloha🌺
I was so happy to make it to #natspark for Hawaiian Shirt night at the ballpark. I even saw lights out Max Scherzer put on a pitching clinic. #nats #basesball #mlb #DC #curlyW #masn #Washington #Nationals #hawaiianshirt #alohashirt #aloha🌺
My morning, a welcomed rocky start. It's so interesting the connections we make. The experiences we share. Walking in a friends footsteps and seeing the same things and things looking so different. Perspective is a gift that can enhance an experience. #hikeVa #hrVa #itsalion #lion #bekind #wednesdaywisdom #beach  #meditationstation #perspective #benice #optoutside🌲 👣
I was a bit upset when I finished a very good book yesterday and I didn't have a replacement. Today at the thrift store I found a hidden gem. In the bargain section. (I guess every section is the bargain section at the thrift store) I wanted to wait and read the book before I saw the movie. Guess what. I couldn't put the book down. I was mesmerized. I already know the movie will not be able to stand up to this. #books #coffee #davthriftstore #meditationstation #optoutside🌲

Another amazing day exploring and hiking #williamandmary and #NewQuarterPark with my son. We crossed the #CrimDell bridge and stood in awe at the giant #Redwood trees on campus. We also visited family and hunted food trucks. #TheBlackPearl was the catch of the day. Not much could've made this day better. #hrVa #hikeVa #explore #adventure #fatherandson
Before the rain came today, I visited a local treasure. J. Thomas Newsome, born to Joseph and Ann Newsome in 1869. Son of former slaves from the Princeton Plantation in Sussex County Virginia, became a prominent Attorney practicing here in #Newportnews Newsome moved into the residence in 1906. The Newsome Home is the first structure owned by an Afro-American to be a recipient of the National Historic Preservation Award. Sometimes things with huge historical significance can be overlooked because we see them everyday. I am very happy this structure was preserved. #hrVa #history #hrVaHistory #TheNewsomeHouse #explore #historypreservation

Today I went to my #meditationstation just to enjoy being outside before work and to finish the last chapter of a book. I last read this book in high school.  It brought back so many memories. After I finished my book, I saw a great deal of wildlife. From herions, frogs, turtles, crabs, fawns and more. Tell me, can you spot the kitten? What a day so far. #optoutside #natureisKing #hrVa #coffee #books

I got a little depressed Saturday after dropping off my son. And what do you do when feeling blue? You hit the trails. It was an amazing day at #Newportnewspark. A park that I haven't visited for some time. The White Oak trail kept whispering to me to go to the car and get my trail shoes so that I could enjoy a run. #optoutside #hrVa #hiking #hikehrVa #trailadventure #reflection

League night at the old #speedclubcenter Eye of the tiger. The boys were hungry tonight. #sodiKart #gokarts #speedclub #racing #earnhardt
After my trail run today, I grabbed a cup of joe and headed over to the Denbigh docks for a short decompression hike. The sky was pretty but the temperature was extremely warm. The humidity in costal Virginia is no joke. Maybe I'll have a slurpee next time. #trailrunning #optoutside #bibchat #runchat #runyourworld

After some speed work on the hills today at #RiverviewFarmPark I headed over to Denbigh docks to decompress and enjoy the sunset. The day was hot but the evening had very pleasant temperatures. This was the perfect ending to my very busy weekend. #hrVA #optoutside #trailrunning #speedwork #bibchat #runchat #LoveNN
I was kind of sad this weekend because I didn't have a #lionsbridgefc match to attended. I am so proud of the organization and all of its sponsors for a phenomenal season. I can hardly wait for next season! #hrVA #ThisIsOurBridge #LoveNN

My weekend in pictures. It was either hot as fire outside or raining cats and dogs. From Denbigh to Fort Monroe. Still a very good weekend.

After a great trail run on the Fort, I rewarded my self with a visit to #oozlefinchcraftbrewery Thank you @gratefulshell for the awesome recommendation on the Dude Blanket Hazy IPA. My new summer favorite! #Cheers #vacraftbeer #hrVa #trailrunning #NPS
I am unable to sleep so I may as well post. Saturday I went for a very short trail run. Just 1 mile. To add some variety to my runs, I decided to sprint the entire mile. Full out. It was pretty intense. The humidity was high and so was the temperature. It felt like a half marathon. This was my much needed post run recovery. #traditionbrewing #trailrunning #pints #foodtrucks #bibchat #runchat #vacraftbeer #hrVa #insomnia #sore #lounging #watchingBaseball
