Maria Shields Sets Running Record

    Davidsonville resident Maria Shields was featured on Tuesday's Fox 45 News segment "Get Fit With Fox."
    The main reason for the feature was Maria's setting of American records for the 60-64 age group for the number of miles run in a 24-hour period. She accomplished this at the "Across the Years" 24-hour run staged at the Camelback Ranch in Phoenix, Arizona, on Dec. 28-29. She was also first female finisher and sixth overall in the event.
    Running on a loop course of almost 1.05 miles, she covered 106.55 miles in 24 hours. Along the way, she also set the 60-64 age group records for miles covered in 12 hours: 75.5.
    Shields was interviewed by Danny Lee from the Crofton Gold's Gym who helped get her ready for the event, as she completed the X-Factor training available at the gym.
    Maria will try for the 50K record on May 30 when she competes in a track run in Pennsylvania. Be sure to congratulate her on her accomplishments the next time you see her – she'll be the one wearing the big smile. Think about the focus she was able to maintain when most of us would not have even considered such an undertaking.
    In 2014, Shields ran 2,239 miles, which places her in third place overall for miles run by Anne Arundel County women.
    There have been several previous articles about Maria in recent years.  Use the Search feature to find them.

      Banjamin Bray Sentenced To 8 Years

      From the Capital-Gazette:
          A 30-year-old Davidsonville man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for conspiracy to distribute drugs and possessing a pipe bomb.
           Benjamin K. Bray was sentenced to eight years, followed by three years of supervised release, for conspiracy to distribute, and possess with intent to distribute, heroin and oxycodone, as well as being a felon in possession of an explosive device, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Baltimore said Monday.
           From at least Jan. 2011 through Dec. 2012, Bray conspired with John Frank Jenkins, 31, of College Park, and others to distribute oxycodone. Bray and his co-conspirators would present forged prescriptions for oxycodone at pharmacies twice a week, using some of the drugs and selling the rest, prosecutors said.
          At some point Bray began using and selling heroin as a cheaper substitute for the prescription drugs, prosecutors said.
          In December 2012, after Jenkins was unable to collect on a $50 drug debt by one of his customers, Bray exploded a pipe bomb on the front porch of the customer's home. The explosion damaged the home's door.
          The customer had been inside the home sleeping at the time, prosecutors said.
      Jenkins was previously sentenced for to 121 months in prison followed by 14 months of home detention and three years of supervised release for his part in the scheme, prosecutors said.
