Don’t Just Lie By The Pool…. Swim In It

Today WakeMed pathology lab employees Duane Martz and Brian Burt dipped their rear bicycle tires in the Pacific Ocean, marking the start of their cross-country bicycle trip. For the next four weeks, the pair will trek from ocean to ocean on the ride of their lives. When asked why, Brian and Duane replied simply “because we can.”

We’re using these two as inspiration to take more active vacations instead of just spending our time holding down a beach chair. Check back periodically for updates on Duane and Brian’s progress.  We’re also planning to offer some suggestions for active, healthy vacations like the following with each update.

Have an Active Vacation by:

Visiting the fitness center at your hotel or resort
Exploring the area and walk!
Renting canoes and/or kayaks
Walking while playing golf instead of riding in the cart
Scuba diving
Taking a bike ride
Playing tennis

Take a Tour! You might find something like this in your destination area: candlelight walking tour, corn maze, kayaking/canoeing/rafting tour, biking tour, horseback riding tour, walking ghost tours, or walking historical tour.
