  Okay, friends! The weather has officially broken and it’s time to emerge from our self-imposed winter hibernation. The sun is warm during the day, birds are chirping, mornings and evenings still have a chill… Spring is the perfect time to get those running miles in, and what better way to stay in shape than participate in a few good challenges! And, if you’re anything like me, then you’re busy looking for some cool races near Washington D.C. or Baltimore to run over the next few months.

Sleeping under the stars in the open air with the nighttime sounds and the creepy crawlies and the unregulated temperatures is SO not my jam. I like a nice skylight to peer through as I snuggle on a for real bed in a room with running water, flushing toilets, hot showers, window screens, and central…
