Coastal Delaware Running Festival Race Re-Cap

First, I’d like to apologize for taking so long to post about this amazing running festival. I think there’s a huge part of me that wants to keep it a secret because it’s such a fantastic weekend event that I really don’t want anyone else to know about it. It’s our secret awesome place, but …

A love note to the Marathon Mamas

Dear Marathon Mamas, This is it! This Sunday, you four courageous women are going to step into your starting line corrals and begin the experience of a lifetime.  All the hours you’ve logged on the trail, around town, around another town, on the treadmill in the basement, on the treadmill at the YMCA, the snaking …
