    You wanna run a small town with a BIG feel? This is a great race to do. I’m hoping the Chamber takes advantage of the exposure it received from being one of the few races taking place during the pandemic 2020.

    The race begins at Medford Park and quickly moves off road onto the Pine line Trail. This out and back is in the midst of picturesque farmlands. If you’re looking to get away from the big city runs and spend some quiet time alone, with God and / or family and friends, there’s no better run. And I needed my run family during this run like no other time.

    If you’re not familiar with my story of why I’m running 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 weeks to celebrate my 50th Birthday Year, please click the link below to Dr. Loren Muirfield’s article about my plight. With this in mind, shortly after mile 9, we found ourselves in the midst of a shooting sporting event. With guns blazing, I began recording myself on my cell while looking at others reacting to the gunfire in an attempt to focus and manage my PTSD. I would learn later that a Vietnam War Veteran was affected by the gunfire. I honestly wasn’t expecting such a display of weaponry in the middle of Central Wisconsin. I thank God I made it through and past the situation.

    Although I only completed the half, I made it to another milestone. This was the first time since the events of being shot at work that I was not affected with nightmares or night terrors. Running is very therapeutic. But when therapy is met with triggers of the trauma,I am only able to be extremely grateful to the LORD my God that it wasn’t worst then it could’ve been.

    The trail is slightly up hill to the turn around. A very smooth surface. I would advise thicker socks to keep the gravel out of your shoes or use gaiters.
    Everyone I ran into or ran with had smiles on their faces. The course runs parallel to a gun range, but NO WORRIES… it’s just a big noisey.

    Even in cold and rain, it’s not a hard run.

    After the race, I sat by a crackling fire with a group of Medfor-ites for four hours, telling Ollie and Sven jokes and meeting a bunch of my new best friends. Fun people!

    I had forgotten people can be so kind and loving. Thank you, Medford. You restored this DC kid’s faith in humanity.
