Bethel Half and 5K – Race Recap

Saturday had loomed heavy in the back of my mind as I was scheduled to run my first race since March 20th when I walked the Forks XV with Ron Slocum.

Race Recap – Catharine Valley Half Marathon

This particular race was a challenge, not in the course but in the weather.  If you look at the pavement we are on, it is very wet.  We may have been in a slight sprinkling period as it was taken but there were torrential downpours throughout the race.  I was thinking we would be on… Continue reading Race Recap – Catharine Valley Half Marathon
