  • Me & Sarah-Sarah getting the reps in! Nothing like stadium steps to spice up a workout. All the way to the top & back down is one rep. E2MOM. Not nearly as much fun as it sounds.
  • All weather workouts. Great community. Clean restrooms. Water bottle stations. Gatorsssss!
  • Home of the Florida Gators, Ben Hill Griffin is a great place to watch SEC football. GO GATORS!
  • Not fun in the rain but The Swamp is nice... second to Doak Campbell Stadium in Florida ;)
  • I've had some of the best times of my football life at the swamp. However I have also had a few of my most disappointing and heartbreaking times. The latter made for a long ride home to Jacksonville. Overall there were many more happy times and rides home. Go GATORS
