Pemberton 24 Take 2: I completed 10 5Ks in 24 hours

There are challenges that come with an event like the Pemberton 24 that aren’t found at many other types of races.
One challenge is that unless you plan to do all 24 of the 5Ks offered, there is no real “finish” that you must meet. You stop running when you meet your goal — but, you can skip a 5K, or a few 5Ks, and come back to the race course. You can use strategy to get extra points during the middle-of-the-night 5Ks. Your goal can change at any time. … More Pemberton 24 Take 2: I completed 10 5Ks in 24 hours

The virtual Race Across Maryland kept me running through the hot summer

I had 60 days to run 250 miles in the virtual Race Across Maryland. This was about 30 miles a week, and I figured it would pose a good challenge, as it’s a little more than my usual mileage. So, it would be a stretch, but doable. But I got behind, and did something I’m … More The virtual Race Across Maryland kept me running through the hot summer

Four reasons why running new roads and filling in my map of Salisbury was a fun pandemic activity

When I first joined CityStrides in September 2019, my map showed that I had only run 18.51 percent of the streets in Salisbury, where I live.

She Runs by the City: Exploring the WB&A Trail in Prince George’s County

Because I write for RunWashington but live on the Eastern Shore, I set a 2020 goal to run in at least six new-to-me places in the Washington, D.C., area, which I figured would include the District, Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties in Maryland, and Northern Virginia. I had the day off for Martin Luther King … More She Runs by the City: Exploring the WB&A Trail in Prince George’s County
