Trap Pond Marathon Race Report

Trap Pond Marathon

Trap Pond Marathon Finisher Medal

The Trap Pond Half Marathon, Marathon and 50k in Laurel, Delaware is an old school trail race.  No big sponsor arches, or even awards for the top finishers, max of 100 runners total, a cool medal and the chance to run laps around the namesake Trap Pond at the Trap Pond State Park.  I am in the process of running 50 marathon in 50 states before I turn 50, and I had to be in DC for work, and this race was the weekend before I needed to be in the Nation’s Capital.  Read my full report here.

The Carl Touchstone Memorial Mississippi 50 Trail Run was this past weekend, March 4th 2017.  The race itself has three distances – 20k, 50k, and 50 miles.  I have not ran an ultra since I moved to New Orleans, and I figured it was time to break that streak.  I ran the 50k distance and finished in 6:08:31 and 31/95 runners at this distance.  Read on for my thoughts on this cool race and finally getting into the southern running community.

Medoc Trail Races – October 15, 2016 Marathon

The Medoc Trail Races is a cool race series in North Carolina that I had the opportunity to participate in October 15th.  They offer three distances – a 5k, 10 miler, and a marathon.  I chose to run the marathon as a part of my goal to run all 50 states before I turn 50 in May of 2027.  Read on to see how my race went.
