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

I didn’t feel my best at the Mike Sterling 10K on Labor Day weekend, but I appreciated the feeling of heading toward that finish line — marked by a crab pot arch.

For my second running excursion outside of Salisbury once the stay-at-home order was lifted, I traveled to Somerset County’s new trail along Route 413. I’d heard about the trail and had seen it when I ran at Janes Island in March, and wanted to come check it out on a run. Like at Janes Island, … More Explore Somerset County’s new 413 Rail to Trail

Ever wondered what speed you could get a speed camera up to by running past it? I did that during May. Read on to see how fast I went and what else I did during another month affected by COVID-19. … More Running past a speed camera, and other things I did during May
It’s important to remember the true meaning of Memorial Day, and wear blue: run to remember is making sure that the lives of those who have died serving the United States of America — including 7,030 people since 9/11/01 — are not forgotten. … More Today, remember Memorial Day’s true meaning. I honored the day with a run.
It looks like virtual races are all we will be able to have for a while, and on Saturday, April 25, the day that the Zoo Stampede was supposed to take place here in Salisbury, I ran the Virtual Zoo Stampede 5K Self Challenge. I hadn’t signed up for this race. I likely would have … More I improved my virtual 5K time at the Zoo Stampede
