I did the Dogfish Dash as a fun run… the day after the Pemberton 24

This year’s Dogfish Dash wasn’t my typical race. In fact, I really embraced Dogfish Head’s “off-centered” motto. I’ve run the Dogfish Dash, and its varying distances, every year it’s been held in-person since 2013. It wasn’t held the past two years, so this year’s race, on Sept. 25, was the first one since 2019. It … More I did the Dogfish Dash as a fun run… the day after the Pemberton 24

I ran my fastest 5K since 2019 at the Run, White and Blue 5K

I’ve been making some strides to get faster this year, and I was able to run my fastest 5K since 2019 at Sept. 8’s Run, White and Blue 5K at Delaware Technical & Community College in Georgetown. Although I was able to run a fast-for-me race, I did cough throughout most of it, especially after … More I ran my fastest 5K since 2019 at the Run, White and Blue 5K

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

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

2019 Running Travels: Delaware’s Assawoman Wildlife Area

I’ve been wanting to run at the Assawoman Wildlife Area for years. I found out about this scenic location from my friend/fellow blogger Kristen Jones, who wrote about running at the refuge here. I finally made it there on April 19, when I had the day off for Good Friday. I woke up early, finished … More 2019 Running Travels: Delaware’s Assawoman Wildlife Area
