Defining Yourself as a Runner & 5Ks

I am a member to the Team Disney Facebook page, and last night there was a debacle about the newly announced Virtual RunDisney 5K events. This post has more to do with new runners/5Ks in general and not so much about RunDisney. However, the issue was brought to my attention, that other runners may or may not…

Race Crew at the RocknRoll Marathon

This Sunday morning in Raleigh, North Carolina, my mother, sister, and I were part of the race crew for the RocknRoll Marathon Series in Downtown Raleigh.
