Follow @vanessajunkin I’m going to be running across the world. But before I mislead you, I’m not going to run all 24,901 miles. I am one of thousands taking part in a running and fundraising effort called If Girls Ran the World, and we will aim to, in total, run 24,901 miles during the month of October as we raise … More I’m running across (part of) the world for Girls on the Run International!

So, I know I’m a little late to the date, but I didn’t … More The Ultimate Coffee Date: A new bike and a couple races
Follow @vanessajunkin Knowing we may be running in rain and wind this morning at the Mike Sterling Crab Derby 10K didn’t bother me. Tropical Storm Hermine was bringing inclement weather to the area, and although I am disappointed that the other National Hard Crab Derby events were postponed or canceled, it actually made for great running weather. … More A unique prize, No. 1 bib at the Mike Sterling Crab Derby 10K
Follow @vanessajunkin I was offered (and accepted) a free entry to this race in exchange for two blog posts; one before the race and one after. Any opinions are my own. I am a big fan of food, and the amount of food at the end of the Run, White & Blue 5K at Delaware … More Fun and food at the Run, White & Blue 5K
