Charlie B Articles, Endurance 0 Comments

Last weekend myself and 11 of my craziest friends decided it would be a good idea to run 200 miles from Cumberland, MD to Old Town Alexandria.

A little late in coming, but I would like to once again thank everyone who made it out for a very successful 2nd Annual Tacky Lights run.
