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.

These earbuds have performed above expectations!  Read on for my final thoughts.
