GW Parkway Classic 10 Miler Race Recap

IMG_0100

The GW Parkway Classic 10 Miler has been on my bucket list for years now. It’s an interesting race because everyone I talk to that has done it raves about it, and yet it’s not massively popular; you can usually sign up for the race right before it with no problems. Part of it, I think, is that the race doesn’t involve the iconic DC monuments; Continue Reading …

Hello my friends! As you know, yesterday I ran the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler! This race is one of my absolute favorites, and this year was especially beautiful thanks to blue skies and the cherry blossoms in full bloom!

Hi friends! As you know, I ran the Rock ‘n’ Roll DC Half Marathon over the weekend with my college friends Kathleen and Sarah! Despite the cold, rainy day, we had a blast.

MCM10k

Hello my friends! As you know, Matt and I ran the MCM 10k – the lesser known sibling to the iconic Marine Corps Marathon – on Sunday morning. After I flubbed the start time for the Clarendon Day 10k last month and accidentally ran the 5k instead, I was chatting with Heather on gchat. “You know,” she said, “You could sign up for the MCM 10k, and Continue Reading …

Clarendon Day 10k that was a 5k

IMG_3150

Guys, I had such a blonde moment on Saturday. Remember how I said my friend Turner and I were running the Clarendon Day 10k? Well, we ended up doing the 8 a.m. 5k instead of the 9 a.m. 10k by accident. I think what happened was that I completely forgot the races started at separate times, and on the race website it just says 8 a.m. start on the Continue Reading …
