A small (but growing) number of albums have finally been indexed on our Pictures page. This is only an interim step, anticipating more native hosting of club media in the future. Enjoy!
Come celebrate some awesome fall marathon performances at our next WRC Happy Hour! Join us at Nellie’s Sports Bar, 900 U St. NW right near the U St. Metro Station, at 6pm on Thursday November 7.
If you’re feeling speedy like any of the WRC MCM-ers, show up before 6 p.m., snag a table for us, and get cheaper happy hour drinks!
Below is a digest of the unoffical results for WRC members at the 2013 Marine Corps Marathon:

WRC leaders Lockwood and Clattenburg paced themselves impeccably, with intermediate splits that deserve a closer look. Team competition results and awards will be determined and made available sometime later this week.
UPDATED: WRC finished third in a very close race among the Mixed Teams, with a combined time of 9:05:50 (fun fact: they would have placed second among Men’s Open Teams)! Team awards are presented to the top three teams in each division. Way to go!
We also have some results for WRC allies hailing from the Dojo of Pain, Georgetown SFS, and Japan, respectively.
In lieu of this week’s Sunday Distance Run, we will be cheering on the marathoners!
I will be staking out a spectating spot for the MCM and would love to have other non-racing WRC members join me. The spot will be the 16 mile marker, which is also about 10.5. It is at the entrance area of Hains Point.
I will be joining Joey Plank and Bethany Pribila as they cheer for their team Team Racing for Veterans (R4V). Some folks may remember them from their handful of runs with us prior to their move to Minneapolis. They worked hard to establish this charity. The mission of R4V is: to support the rehabilitation of and provide opportunities for veterans in the United States through their involvement in athletics, races and adaptive sports.
Joey and Bethany have invited us to join their celebratory party at World of Beer in Arlington, VA from Noon to 4 PM (901 N. Glebe RD 105, Arlington, VA 22203).
An exciting day! Good luck to all runners!

WRC Vice President Carla Freyvogel, current club member Charlie Ban, and club alumnus Jim Hage are all quoted at length in Jessica Goldstein’s October 25th article in the Washington Post’s Style section (or, “the gateway to the Sports section”, as we like to call it).
The excellent lead photo by Katherine Frey is of the start of our Sunday Distance Run, with Liz Lambert, Gerry Ives, Christine Hackman, Megan Haberle, Mike Manning, Carla Freyvogel, Rachel Clattenburg, Emily Buzzell, Drew Killian, and Kit Wells all visible in the foreground.
That it appears Gerry is being chased by a hoard of very fit and accomplished women is no accident.

A chill in the air at the start of the Army Ten Miler meant WRC would be racing in ideal conditions. Add to that the wounded warriors participating in the race today to make a memorable race experience. Now for the unofficial nuts and bolts:

Hillary Tipton with be racing with many of her WRC teammates at the 2013 Marine Corps Marathon next Sunday. Daisuke Ogata will be be racing at the MCM10K next Sunday, in preparation for the Philadelphia Marathon on November 17th.
Army—The Army Ten-Miler is actually happening this Sunday, and el Prez Kirk is registered to race it. General registration sold out in just 9 hours; you may or may not consider this to be a good thing. Update: Julia Taylor is also entered!
Open—The National Parks are finally open. So while we do have some hardened backup routes, the oldies-but-goodies are so back in circulation. Maybe this week for the MCM marathoners: Brookmont – MacArthur Blvd Loop (9.3 miles), plus some extra 100m strides down by the Georgetown Waterfront Park. Non-marathoners might do the above, plus a Dumbarton Oaks – Georgetown Loop (3.9 miles), then the strides. As usual, we’ll figure things out on the fly.
Paul—Mr. Karlsen will be granting autographs and telling apocryphal stories from last weekend’s triumph in Chicago. We can also settle the matter of who came closest to predicting Paul’s finishing time; winner takes a coffee and a cronut (breakfast of champions).
Peru—We’re expecting a special guest from Lima, who will sneak away from some coursework to join us on Sunday morning. Welcome, Jenny!
Post—Wear your Sunday’s finest, because a certain daily newspaper is going to have a photographer come out and take some shots of us training. Once was not enough!
