I challenged myself with the virtual Zoo Stampede 5K

I’m so far away from my personal record times that I am just not in a place to go for PRs right now. However, I did set a goal for 2021 to beat two of my distance times from last year (5K, 10K, half marathon and marathon). I’ve already beaten my fastest 2020 half marathon time with my run at this month’s Salisbury Half Marathon, and I tried to beat my fastest 2020 5K on Saturday, when I ran my virtual Zoo Stampede 5K. … More I challenged myself with the virtual Zoo Stampede 5K

I ran a virtual 5K to support Wicomico’s frontline employees — and you can, too

On Wednesday, April 8, I set out for my first 5K for speed since September. But the pace didn’t really matter — what mattered was logging the 3.1 miles that would help get a meal to a frontline employee in Wicomico County. Wicomico County Recreation & Parks, where I work, partnered with Amerigroup and the … More I ran a virtual 5K to support Wicomico’s frontline employees — and you can, too
