I’ve run the Dogfish Dash, and its varying distances, every year it’s been held in-person since 2013.

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
