Runner’s World Heartbreak Hill Half & Festival: 5k and 10k Recaps!

This year’s Runner’s World Heartbreak Hill Half & Festival offered 3 main races (not including a fun 1 mile dog run): a 5k, a 10k, and a half marathon.

Richmond Marathon Race Recap!

Wow. I’m a marathoner. I still can’t really believe it! On Saturday morning in Richmond, I woke up at 5 a.m., feeling rested but nervous, tossing and turning until 6 when my alarm went off.
