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: 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: 2017 REHOBOTH BEACH MARATHON

I’m overjoyed to report that I completed the 2017 Rehoboth Beach Marathon on Saturday, December 2. My amazing husband, Tom, drove an hour to pick up my race packet and goodie bag for me this year on Friday, since I had to work a full day. I didn’t want to grab my race packet the day of the race, since I’m always frazzled to begin with before race day. I wrote a permission letter for Tom to pick up my bib in which I praised the race volunteers, and Linda Chi loved it so much that she read it out … Continue reading RACE RECAP: 2017 REHOBOTH BEACH MARATHON

Epic Un-Fail

Hi, all, It breaks my heart into tiny little fragments to even write this post. It’s like the elephant in the room for me, but I just want to get it out there in case anyone asks/is wondering.  I’m not going to the Marine Corps Marathon 2016. . .for several reasons that might not even matter at this point. I need to come to terms with this though, so here goes. . . 1.) I’m so very grateful that I reached my $1,000 fundraising goal for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who … Continue reading Epic Un-Fail
