Off on a family vacation this summer?

You can still train.

Yep, not only is it possible, but it can be the kick we need to rekindle our passion for running again.

Some of my best runs and races have occurred on vacation. I’ve run a 35k trail race in Australia, a half marathon in Palm Springs, a 10k in the Adirondacks, and many others along the way. I’ve run along the beach, in the mountains, and on beautiful river paths throughout Europe.

There's no better way to take in the sights, in my opinion.

At the same time, I am very cognizant of the fact that time alone and away with my family is special and I don't want to infringe upon that.

After all, my husband and kids don't want to spend their vacation time waiting for me to finish a…

Island Beach NJ

New Jersey has plenty of gorgeous beaches along its lengthy coastline. Some are small, sleepy beaches tucked away down a sandy path. Others are made for the masses with so much to enjoy. Island Beach falls somewhere in between. Located within a state park that has the same name, Island Beach is not small or tucked away, but it is a stunning natural oasis that all visitors love. Regardless, it sometimes gets passed by in favor of nearby beaches such as Seaside Park, which features numerous boardwalk attractions and therefore draws more tourists. But here's everything you should know about Island Beach and the surrounding park.

Island Beach State Park is a narrow barrier island spanning 10 miles and located between Barnegat Bay and the Atlantic Ocean…

home buyerMust Haves - if this property does not have these items, then it shouldn't even be considered. (ex: distance from work or family, number of bedrooms/bathrooms)

Should Haves - if the property hits all of the must haves and some of the should haves, it stays in contention, but does not need to have all of these features.

Absolute Wish List - if we find a property in our budget that has all of the must haves, most of the should haves, and ANY of these, it's the winner!

Bottom Line

Having this list flushed out before starting your search will save you time and frustration, while also letting your agent know what features are most important to you before starting to show you houses in your desired area.

The results of the latest RENT VS. BUY REPORT from Trulia show that homeownership remains cheaper than renting with a traditional 30-year fixed rate mortgage in the 100 largest metro areas in the United States.

The updated numbers actually show that the range is an average of 17.4% less expensive in Honolulu (HI), all the way up to 53.2% less expensive in Miami & West Palm Beach (FL), and 37.7% nationwide!

Other interesting findings in the report include:

  • Interest rates have remained low, and even though home prices have appreciated around the country, they haven't greatly outpaced rental appreciation.
  • Home prices would have to appreciate by a range of over 23% in Honolulu (HI), up to over 45% in Ventura County (CA), to reach the tipping…
