The YMCA Turkey Trot 5k takes place in multiple cities throughout Maryland. Josh Riddle ran the Bel Air, MD course this year, his second formal 5k.
It was hot and humid this year for Winchester, VA’s annual 4th of July 5K. It is tough to PR on this course, but Aaron hoped to at least improve from last year.
