2014 MCM—Race Day Plans

Beyond this week’s Sunday Distance Run, we will be cheering on the marathoners!

I will be staking out two spectating spots for the MCM and would love to have other non-racing WRC members join me. The first spot will be at Mile 4.2, upon the Key Bridge. The second spot will be the 16 mile marker, which is also about 10.5. It is at the entrance area of Hains Point. I plan to sneak in some training miles between these two points of interest.

Megan Haberle is planning to hover between miles 15.2/17, off 15th st, on the other side of the Tidal Basin, to provide complete race day coverage.

Kendall Hope Tucker is returning from Boston for the race weekend, and has invited WRCers (marathoners and supportors alike) to a mostly mandatory post-race drink-up at The Mad Hatter DC just south of Dupont Circle, from 3 PM onward (1319 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington DC 20036).

Good luck to all runners!

Sunday Distance Run – 10/18

Oh what a beautiful morning! It looks like we’re in for another tomorrow too! The planned route will be 12-13 miles on Rock Creek Trail and either Ross Drive or Beach Drive. We are starting at 0800. Some may be adding miles before or after.

Congrats to the marathon finishers of last weekend! Good luck to those running this weekend!

The SDR will start at 0800 in front of CB2 in Georgetown (33 and M).

Sunday Distance Run – 10/11

The professionals are calling for something around 50 during tomorrow’s SDR. Sounds good!

The planned route is Tour of Arlington (around 16 miles). If running something shorter (or otherwise different) then make sure to coordinate prior to 0805 launch!

We will have a small pack running earlier (yes one more time) at 0700 with mileage options between 12 and 20.

Either way….meet at 33rd and M in front of CB2. Coffee afterwards!

And…good luck to those racing tomorrow!
