Running on the beach!
Congratulations to all of the runners that competed yesterday in the 10th annual Outer Banks Marathon! What a great accomplishment for all of the athletes involved whether you ran a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, or the Full 26.2 miles we are in awe of your determination!
Is your passion fitness or raising awareness for worthy causes? Road races in the Outer Banks of North Carolina give you the opportunity to enjoy both, plus offer challenging courses on every level. Even better… you’ll take in some inspiring scenery to keep you motivated along the way.
Another Monday, and another great Memory from this past summer on the Outer Banks to pass along. This week’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Mallory Fuller of Asheville, North Carolina. For those of you that don’t know Asheville is in the Mountains of North Carolina, so we are sure the cold temperatures and snow of late have her thinking about her vacation with Outer Banks Blue last July in the property “Orion’s Landing” in Kill Devil Hills.
This week’s Memory Monday submission departs from our usual in that we want to take a moment to congratulate all of the runners, organizers and supporters of the 5th Annual Outer Banks Marathon, Half Marathon, 8 K race, 5 K race, and Fun Run which was held this past weekend here on the beach!
I hope you made note of the new design of www.outerbanksblue.com. In our constant effort to be the vacation rental company of choice on the Outer Banks we launched our new design on Monday, February 16th. In response to customer comments and suggestions there are lots of changes can be found on the site including better search parameters, a more clear presentation of available weeks on individual homes, better organization of guest comments, more obvious integration of Google Maps locations on our homes, and just a new overall feel of the site.
