I ran the trails at Hashawha for the first time in more than a decade

I’d been wanting to make it back to the trails at Hashawha Environmental Center in Westminster, Maryland, for a while, and I finally made that happen last month, on Sept. 6.

I explored the Nanticoke River WMA – Nutters Neck for the first time

Even though I’ve lived in Wicomico County full-time for almost nine years, and I’ve seen a lot of our county, I’m still finding new places to explore. A couple weeks ago, I decided to check out the Nanticoke RIver Wildlife Management Area – Nutters Neck. … More I explored the Nanticoke River WMA – Nutters Neck for the first time

I ran 12 scenic Delmarva courses during the Tour de Salisbury

Not many races include numerous scenic courses around the region. But the virtual Tour de Salisbury — created in the wake of COVID-19 — did just that.

I ran somewhere new every month in 2019, ending with some Montgomery County trails

Each month of 2019, I’d followed through with my goal and ran in a new-to-me location. But I’d gotten to Christmas Day without running somewhere new in December. I’d been at my aunt and uncle’s house the evening of Christmas and stayed over before heading back to Salisbury the next morning. I was talking to … More I ran somewhere new every month in 2019, ending with some Montgomery County trails

2019 Running Travels: All aboard the York County Heritage Rail Trail

Around the time I ran the entire Maryland portion of the NCR Trail, I became interested in checking out the connecting Pennsylvania portion of the trail, too: the York County Heritage Rail Trail. The Pennsylvania portion starts where the NCR Trail/Torrey C. Brown Rail Trail ends, at the Maryland-Pennsylvania state line, and continues to York. … More 2019 Running Travels: All aboard the York County Heritage Rail Trail

2019 Running Travels: Exploring New Smyrna Beach, Fla., on the run

Some people may think it’s tough to fit running into a vacation, but since I love running in new places and I had more free time in each day than I usually do, I was able to fit in a run every day during my recent trip to New Smyrna Beach, Florida. In fact, this … More 2019 Running Travels: Exploring New Smyrna Beach, Fla., on the run

2019 Running Travels: The trails of Tuckahoe State Park really are a treasure

The trails of Tuckahoe State Park seem to have it all — single track trails, a wider stretch of trail, hills and a water crossing. I went to the Tuckahoe State Park trails for the first time on Saturday, July 13, for a Tuckahoe 25K training run. This new race, set for Nov. 2, sold … More 2019 Running Travels: The trails of Tuckahoe State Park really are a treasure
