I have the best of intentions, like most of us do, but somewhere around Day 5 or so I always lose … Continue reading The BibRave Strava Run Streak 2019

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.
