Race Recap: atTAcK Addiction 5K 3/2/19

It has become my birthday tradition to run the atTAcK Addiction 5K in New Castle, DE, on my birthday weekend. This year for my 37th shin-dig, the race fell on Saturday, March 2, 2019 and held an extra special place in my heart. I ran, in particular, for my sister-in-law Chrissy, who passed away suddenly this summer from an overdose. The race’s proceeds benefit atTAcK addiction, a grassroots 501(c)(3) charitable foundation established to assist individuals and families impacted by addiction. The organization provides support for recovering addicts and their loved ones, advocates for policy changes, educates families about opiate addiction … Continue reading Race Recap: atTAcK Addiction 5K 3/2/19

Race Recap: The Sweetest 5K Run/Walk in DE ~ 3/9/19

Cold, windy, but delicious would describe this race to a T. I attended the Delaware Technical Community College’s The Sweetest 5K Run/Walk in Delaware on February 9, 2019 in Dover, DE. I’ve been meaning to attend this event for years now, but have always been afraid of the potential weather (it almost always seems to rain or is frigid). I’m so glad I finally took the plunge and ran this race. For whatever reason, I always thought that this race was wicked small, so I didn’t have high expectations on race day. Boy was I wrong! The first amazing factor … Continue reading Race Recap: The Sweetest 5K Run/Walk in DE ~ 3/9/19
