I write for RunWashington and … More 2019 Running Travels: The Mount Vernon Trail in Northern Va.
I only met one of my running goals in 2018, but that won’t stop me from starting out 2019 by setting five running-related goals. I tried to set a variety of goals — for example, they aren’t all time-based. I am also linking up with Zenaida Arroyo and Kookyrunner (Kim), two fellow BibRave Pros, for … More I’m heading into 2019 with these five running goals

At the end of 2017, I became a BibRave team captain for the East Region, a role that I held throughout 2018 and … More 2018: A year I somehow became even more involved in running
At the end of 2017, I looked back to see which of my blog posts got the most views.

Follow @vanessajunkin I was on my way up the Chesapeake Bay Bridge when I saw 10:40 as my current pace on my watch. I was hoping to run the race in somewhere around a 9:00 pace — even though I knew that was probably a stretch — so it was disappointing to see 10:40.
