A Vacation (Adventure) with My Family - This is what makes it all worth it…
|Peyton and I (2003)|
I look back at pictures of me holding him as a baby and cannot believe how close I was to missing out on some of the best moments of my life.
This year, I decided to take my son on a road trip for his Spring Break. He’s seven and in the second grade so I figured this was a great time to do it (before he's too embarrassed to hang out with me).
With this in mind, I sat down and planned out a full week of crazy adventures.
We started with a family run, the Krispy Kreme Donut Run. This was on the first day of his vacation (Saturday). My wife, son and me made up Team "Moore Ons Running" and had a blast running the 3 mile race (and eating the donuts).

After the race, we drove to Gatlinburg, TN. We stopped several times to walk around and take in the scenery. We made it there that evening, parked our car and started walking. We checked out the stores, played putt putt golf, walked some more and then went swimming.

When we got back that night we still had enough energy to go to the Aquarium. We spent a few hours there and then headed back to the hotel (and more swimming).

We stayed one more day to hit IKEA and then headed home to South Carolina.
Now that’s a road trip!

These are the motivators in my life; these are the things that get me out of bed at 3:45am to run twenty miles in the middle of the hot Charleston summer (or winter).
