Raleigh, NC

“My hometown does inspire me. It’s where I’m from, born and raised. I have a song called Nu Burn ave which is about self-reflecting on this road that stretches from my house all the way downtown. Raleigh has so much soul. I’m a southern man, it will always inspire me . . . The places I hang, the friends I have, the relationships they stay and fade. The roads and highways. Everything top to bottom about Raleigh inspires me.”  — Boulevards

William B. Umstead State Park
"The most inspiring outdoor place is Umstead park. I usually do my long runs out there. its the mecca of running in my humble opinion in North Carolina. You can just get lost out there and enjoy 10 mile runs."  —  Boulevards
