Bucks County Marathon: Frosty Fun

The Bucks County Marathon was the coldest marathon I've run so far, but it was a thoroughly enjoyable race! Not severe cold -- low 30s to start and barely 40 to finish, and it didn't start raining until after I drove away, thank goodness! It was a small field of a little more than 300 finishers -- …

And I am a 4-star Marathon Maniac having completed 9 marathons between March, 2013, and this past January including a …

Access Granted

Another over-due race report! Trying to play catchup before my next race... I am now officially registered for the Marine Corps Marathon in October! And I didn't have to play the lottery waiting game. Instead, I had to run the Marine Corps 17.75K on Saturday, April 12, in Prince William County Forest to earn the …
