Set sail on your dreams!

Couple shares once-in-a-lifetime island adventure

Tyson Hayward has always dreamt of sailing. Raised in land-locked Calgary, Canada by a father who had competed in the Olympic trials as a Star-Class yacht racer, the call of a watery horizon always beckoned him. So, at his first chance, in his early twenties, he set off for the Virgin Islands. Working as a waiter, he earned his fins as a scuba dive master and spent a year exploring the underwater paradise of the islands.

Marathon-ing in New Orleans

Five friends find an excuse to race at NOLA.

It all started with a bucket list,  five girlfriends, running shoes and a plane ticket to New Orleans. Five women, but all sharing the singular goal of supporting one amazing friend. Heidi Wicka had decided that she would run but a single marathon in her lifetime, thus it best be someplace memorable. So when she told us that she had selected New Orleans as THE marathon, how could we not go to support her? Right? New Orleans, AKA NOLA, with Bourbon Street, great food, incredible history, and music that people live a lifetime to hear.

Four Atascadero cyclists ride across America for wounded veterans

A retired Marine will attempt a remarkable event this summer, biking 3,700 miles across the U.S. to raise funds for wounded Marines and sailors.

John Foldberg, at age 57, will be accompanied by Daniel and Nathan Macfarlane and Evan Gillham, three young men who had heard about Foldberg’s endeavor and asked to come along. The four Atascadero residents have formed a group named “CCC4Vets” or “Cross-Country Cyclists for Veterans.” They will leave Anacortes, Washington on August 1, 2013 and bike 60 miles a day until they arrive at Virginia Beach, Virginia mid-October.

Living and thriving with the big “C”

I grew up in San Luis Obispo. It was an idyllic and active childhood thanks to my amazing parents. I was one of those kids whose parents would literally tell me go outside and play until dinner. This resulted in frequent tromps all around Bishop Peak where I invariably got muddy at the pond. It also included daily trips to the SLO Swim Center for swim practice. The smell of chlorine wafting over the pool on a summer morning makes me want to dive in and crank out a few 1000 meters (time has allowed me to romanticize those killer workouts).

Professionals help avid adventure-seeker balance a DIY lifestyle

My mom and dad raised a do-it-yourselfer. Car needs a headlight? Figure it out. Sink leaking? No problem. But what happens when your football-playing father teaches you to just suck it up when your body falls apart and that doesn’t work for you?
