I paced the 2:45 group at the Coastal Delaware Half Marathon and came in with one second to spare

After my run at the Salisbury Half Marathon, I was a little nervous about pacing the 2:45 group at the Coastal Delaware Half Marathon. I knew I could do it, and I’d paced a 2:45 half without issue in December, but my time of 2:42:24 at Salisbury left me worried that I’d run too close … More I paced the 2:45 group at the Coastal Delaware Half Marathon and came in with one second to spare

I went for a beautiful run at Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge

Whenever I attend a meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Tourism Public Relations Alliance, I always enjoy running in the host location. The most recent meeting took place April 22 in Dewey Beach (Southern Delaware Tourism was the host), and I needed to pick up my packet for the Coastal Delaware Running Festival in the area later … More I went for a beautiful run at Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge

After two years, I had a successful return to pacing at the Rehoboth Beach Seashore Half Marathon

Since the pandemic began, there have been fewer races and, of course, fewer pacing opportunities. So, when I held up my 2:45 sign in the corral of the Rehoboth Beach Seashore Half Marathon on Saturday, Dec. 4, it would be my first time pacing a half marathon in two years. My last time pacing was … More After two years, I had a successful return to pacing at the Rehoboth Beach Seashore Half Marathon

Run, White and Blue 5K: Not my fastest time, but a fun time

For my third race of four in an eight-day span, I headed up to the Delaware Technical Community College Owens Campus in Georgetown for the Run, White and Blue 5K. This was my sixth year in a row participating in the event, including last year’s virtual run. For the first four times I did this … More Run, White and Blue 5K: Not my fastest time, but a fun time

Rain and holiday spirit combine during a run on the Georgetown-Lewes Trail

I had a rare night out of town earlier this month, and I took off work the following day. Of course, I wanted to run and explore some new scenery. During a previous trip to the Rehoboth Beach-Lewes, Delaware, area, my boyfriend and I had stopped at Old World Breads, and I noticed that it … More Rain and holiday spirit combine during a run on the Georgetown-Lewes Trail

I paced my 10th half marathon at this year’s Rehoboth Seashore Half Marathon

On the sixth anniversary of my first full marathon, which was the Rehoboth Beach Seashore Marathon, I paced my 10th half marathon. This is one of my favorite races, and I’ve returned every year since 2013, making this my seventh time running Rehoboth. It was my third consecutive year pacing the 2:30 half marathon with … More I paced my 10th half marathon at this year’s Rehoboth Seashore Half Marathon

Coastal Delaware Running Festival: A nice day to pace the 3:00 group

It was another foggy start. After the Salisbury Marathon the previous weekend, I was ready to start the Coastal Delaware Running Festival Half Marathon under a very foggy sky. But at this race, I had a different goal. At the marathon, I ran a tough-for-me pace, and I nearly met my goal of sub-4:45 — … More Coastal Delaware Running Festival: A nice day to pace the 3:00 group

2019 Running Travels: Exploring the Chapel Branch Nature Trail in Seaford

I set a goal to run in a new-to-me location each month during 2019, and by March 30, I still hadn’t run in a totally new location in March. I did run on a new-to-me part of the NCR Trail when I ran the entire trail, which I do think counts. However, I didn’t go … More 2019 Running Travels: Exploring the Chapel Branch Nature Trail in Seaford
