Running to Rehoboth

Over the weekend, I headed down to Lewes, Delaware with Josh for the annual reunion of his college friends. Lewes is a tiny beach town just north of Rehoboth and Dewey beaches, about two hours south of Philadelphia. Naturally, I researched some trails I could stomp on while I was there. 
I came across the Junction and Breakwater trail online, and established an out and back route that would total about 14 miles. The trail connects the beach towns of Lewes and Rehoboth. 
Red line is the J & B Trail
On Saturday morning, I set out with Kari, who was also training for a race, the the Broad Street Run 10 miler. She had about 7 miles planned, and luckily, we both ran around the same pace.
We ran about 2.5 miles on a few rural roads with no sidewalks to get to the trail. We also ran through a newly constructed neighborhood which had some odd speed restrictions.

The routes to the trail heads were very well marked, and there were mile markers at each half mile along the trail.

When we finally arrived at the trail, we realized it was well worth dodging traffic on boring asphalt. 

The J & B trail wound through Cape Henlopen State Park, where there is a small network trails I did not have time to explore. This is the main, multi-use trail used by walkers, runners, and bikers alike. We ran through forested sections, over small marshes, and through wide open fields. Kari and I were happy to be running through terrain which one does not often see within 2 miles of the beach. 

After about 6.5 miles we reached the town of Rehoboth, and then at 8 miles, we hit the boardwalk and the beach.

Kari called her boyfriend to pick her up in Rehoboth, where they did a bit of shopping. I said goodbye, sucked down a GU, and turned around to double back on the trail to head back to Lewes. I ended up running over 16 miles, which was over my goal of 14 for the day. I didn't mind, because my legs and lungs felt strong in the brisk spring air, and I was glad to be running somewhere new for the first time in a few weeks. 

When I got back, I went to the local cafe for lunch and treated myself to one of my all-time favorite brews, Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA.The brewery is actually located within a few miles of Lewes and Rehoboth in nearby Milton, Delaware.  This is the quintessential American IPA, and easily Dogfish Head's best-selling beer (that's totally conjecture, but if I can find it in a gas station in NY state, I'm gonna go ahead and say it is.)

Apparently I take crooked photos when I'm hungry.

I ended the week with 50.5 miles which I was very happy with. I'm hoping to get in another 50+ miles this week, which will include the Delaware Trail Marathon this upcoming Saturday. I'm feeling a bit nervous about the race, but I'm also excited since it's still just a "training run" for my goal race, the Dirty German 50k. 
Happy Trails!

  3. I have been exploring for a little bit for any high
    quality articles or weblog posts in this sort of area . Exploring in Yahoo I eventually stumbled upon this web site.

    what I needed. I so much no doubt will make certain to don?t put out of your mind this
    web site and give it a glance on a continuing basis.

  7. You can also receive the train that most the creature ride on inside the TV series.
    For example, fur boots present the perfect combination of functionality
    and fun. It is fun for a mother to determine that her children are
    being unified to create something possible especially whether it is to be with her.
