The Race to the "Creek" 5K took place on the 4th of July to raise money for the Patuxent High Cross Country team (That was my high school 100 years ago!).

On April 29th I got back into the 5k game with the Run for the Wild 5k at the Bronx Zoo! With 5,197 participants this race was pretty huge.

Recently my shins started hurting, and then by the time they felt better my knee started hurting. What do you do when your shins hurt and your knee hurts?
