Unofficial Cherry Blossom 10 Miler Team Results and Individual Award Results have just been published. Impressions to come with stories in moments.
FLASH UPDATE: Our Women’s Open and Mixed Masters teams both finished third, meaning that fame, fortune, and hopefully coveted engraved medals and a team plaque will be theirs. Our elite team finished 2nd, but in the ideal configuration we could have finished 3rd in the Men’s Open division, along with our other teams which finished 6th, 10th, and 21st.
Team scoring is based on the sum of the net finishing times of the first three eligible finishers on the team as recorded by chiptime. For full details on team scores, see the race site, here.
Below is the digest of performances across WRC for the morning. Way to go!

Individual and team results from this morning are pending. But at first blush, it seems like we did very, very, well! Live, very tentative results are available here. Check back after lunch.
WRC members and logos come in a variety of flavors and colors. Some varieties are only released for a limited time.
WRC is returning to compete in the Running Club division of the Credit Union Cherry Blossom
(CUCB) Ten Mile Run on April 7, 2013. We are fielding teams in the Metropolitan Men’s Elite
, Women’s Open, Mixed Masters, and Men’s Open divisions. This is a combined effort between the WRC and the Dojo of Pain
training group. I’m pretty excited about this year’s massive turnout—twice as large as the club fielded last year!
Plans accompanying the race include 1) taking a group photo AFTER the race, at 9:30 AM, near the security wall North of the Washington Monument; and 2) catching up with Madeline Harms over lunch on Saturday, as she’s back in town from the Twin Cities. Continue reading
Looking to add some spring to your step? The Crawlers, another DC running club, has extended an open invitation to its weekly Wednesday interval workouts. The group usually meets at 6:30 AM at Banneker track, but they sometimes meet in Woodley Park for hill repeats and they occasionally do an evening track workout. It’s a fun group of people with a nice range of speeds. They don’t have a website, so if you want to learn about upcoming workouts and where they’ll be meeting, send an email to: <Ben (dot) Geman (at) thehill (dot) com> and he’ll add you to the email list.
