Lured by the promise of an f-heavy offering (fresh fruit, farmer’s market frittata, and French press coffee), WRC’s Board of Directors convened this morning in Arlington at Masterson Manor, for their second quarterly meeting. All serving members were in attendance, and a lot of ground was covered. In a nutshell, the state of the club is very strong, and we’re making lots of progress on all fronts.
While the official minutes will be reported in the upcoming May edition of the WRC Newsletter (please subscribe here or here), there are a couple of line-items that bear immediate reporting:
- The next Grand Prix race, the Capitol Hill Classic 10K, is coming up on May 19th, and GP coordinator David Pittman encourages everyone racing there to remember to register their WRC affiliation for team scoring through the race.
- President Kirk Masterson will be hosting a WRC Happy Hour on Thursday, May 23rd, at Circa in Foggy Bottom, between 6-8 pm. Calendar. Map.
- The board collectively decided to adjust the Sunday Distance Run‘s starting time to its Summer schedule of 7:00 AM, beginning Sunday June 2nd. This is the first Sunday after Memorial Day weekend, and right about when the perfect storm of heat, humidity, and cicadas should enrobe our fair city. An early start will help us to deal with that thrilling prospect.
Also, the next Quarterly Board Meeting has been scheduled for Saturday, August 17th, time and location both TBD. Please check the WRC Events Calendar, where we will keep all of these important details up-to-date.
Like I said, there’s a whole lot of other material that will be covered in the official club minutes. But for right now, this is the stuff that’s at close range and makes the pulse react.
NEXT BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING: 10:00 AM, MAY 11, 2013. Calendar. Map. RSVP. Continue reading

Race day started as the best of all running weather days. Cool, sunny, low humidity. It was really Washington DC at its finest; the monuments glowed white, the streets were clean swept and the trees were a new green. A great day to run a half marathon.
15,000 women and Dan Yi did just that. Continue reading

Two clubs, two singlets, two cities, together!
We are lucky that no member or family member of the club was impacted by the shameful attack at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15th. However, we are greatly saddened by the
four deaths and hundreds of grievous injuries suffered by our running community brethren. Our club extends its condolences and sympathy to all those directly affected. Furthermore, our full support goes to the B.A.A.
and the City of Boston
. Boston is greater than any bomber.
WRC wishes to voice a solidarity that is louder than bombs, by continuing to participate in the sport we love, exercised within a kind of free and open society that we require. So, as far as this upcoming weekend goes, here are four things which WRC is doing. Please join us. Continue reading
