Race Recap: Rehoboth Seashore Marathon 12/8/18

Words can’t entirely describe how thankful and grateful I am to be a part of such an amazing running event as the Rehoboth Seashore Marathon. I truly do mean event. This isn’t just a race—but an actual epic event. The lead-up to the race literally lasts an entire year, starting on December 31 when you can sign up for next year’s race and get the deepest discount possible.  (Mark your calendars! Set a phone alarm! Tell a friend!)  The Facebook event page always has a flurry of activity—mostly snarky—and the participants are generous, helpful, encouraging, and hilarious. The Race Director, … Continue reading Race Recap: Rehoboth Seashore Marathon 12/8/18

Race Recap: Ryan’s High Five 5K Run/Walk 2018

I attended the third-annual Ryan’s High Five 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, November 11, 2018 to support my amazing friend during her first 5K walk! I have to be totally truthful here and say that I didn’t have very high expectations of this race. I’d never heard of it before, wasn’t concerned about aid stations or post-race food, and had no idea what the elevation of the course looked like. My only goal was to support my friend, go at a comfortable pace, and get in some great one-on-one time. She is the mom of the Mature Kindergartner’s (MK) BFF, so … Continue reading Race Recap: Ryan’s High Five 5K Run/Walk 2018

Race Recap: Monster Mash Full Marathon 10/20/18

It’s time for my three-phrase, post-race summation! For the Monster Mash Marathon on Saturday, October 20, 2018, I’d like to use the following—solitary slog, poop (not my own), and lost Gu. Since hubs had to pick up the Mature Kindergartener (MK) [because really, she’s no longer a toddler, nor angry, and is growing up way too quickly] on Friday from school, my awesome Smyrna Clayton Running Club friend Jenn picked me up to go to packet pick-up around 3:30 p.m. (Thank you, thank you, thank you!) Jenn was running her first half marathon, so I was wicked excited to be … Continue reading Race Recap: Monster Mash Full Marathon 10/20/18

Race Recap: Fallen Heroes 5K 2018

I’d like to sum this race up in three words as I’m wont to do: geese, poop, humidity. We’ll get to that in a sec. I know it’s nearly a month later, so I first want to apologize for not writing a race review for the Fallen Heroes 5K from May 24, 2018 until now! To say that work has been crazy is an understatement, and I kind of lost my mojo there for a bit. Oh, and we were at Walt Disney World for a week. That’ll take the oomph right outta ya. Anyway, last year’s race seemed very … Continue reading Race Recap: Fallen Heroes 5K 2018

Race Recap: Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay Thin Mint 5K 2018

I’m going to sum this race up in three words: Rain, cold, COOKIES. On Sunday, April 15, 2018, I ran the Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay Thin Mint 5K in Wilmington, DE. I ran this race back in 2014 and had an awesome time! Here’s the race recap if you’re interested. I had been keeping a side-eye on the weather the whole weekend, because I knew it was supposed to rain and come nowhere close to the over-eighty-degree weather of Saturday. The location of the race also eluded me a bit, because the address was listed simply as “Lot E, … Continue reading Race Recap: Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay Thin Mint 5K 2018

Race Recap: atTAcK Addiction 5K 2018

I ran the atTAcK Addiction 5K on March 3, 2018, which was a day before my 36th birthday. I love running this race, because typically we have cake and ice cream to celebrate my birthday at my in-laws who live in town afterward, so I have something to look forward to after racing! Hubs, the Angry Toddler (or the AT, whom will now be known as the Angry Kinder soon), and I plotted to leave the house by no later than 7:15 a.m. that morning, since it takes us about 45 minutes to get to New Castle from where we live. … Continue reading Race Recap: atTAcK Addiction 5K 2018

Mini Race Recap: Angela Ivory Memorial 50K ~ 1/20/18

Gosh I’ve been delinquent in finishing this race review—so sorry! The Angela Ivory Memorial 50K/50-Miler was held on Saturday, January 20, 2018. This was the second year that I attended—and the second year that I had to leave early to attend the Angry Toddler’s friend’s birthday party. I’m not complaining whatsoever, because the party was a blast, and I got to ice skate with the Angry Toddler for the first time! I just feel like I still have this challenge to conquer at some point in my life. I woke up at 7 a.m. EST on Saturday morning literally bargaining … Continue reading Mini Race Recap: Angela Ivory Memorial 50K ~ 1/20/18
