Will Cotton’s “Cupcake Katy” (2010) went on view at the National Portrait Gallery, but not without some local finishing touches.
Our store has finally reopened to take your pre-orders for club racing singlets! One American songbird, Katy Perry, already received hers and wore it out to the National Portrait Gallery (June 18 – July 6)! artnet News has another view of Katy’s NPG selfie.
So WRC members: place your orders, and we’ll have you suited for our own sweet sport.
It’s Summer! Looks like the rain will be done by 0700 tomorrow, so should be pretty decent running weather. The planned route will be ~15 miles through Rock Creek park. Something similar to the Nature Center – Bingham Loop:
Meet in front of CB2 (33rd and M) at 0700!

Tomorrow marks our return to 0700 start time! The planned SDR route is a 14.5 mile trek out the Towpath, turn off at Glen Echo, and back down with combination of MacArthur & CCT. The route map can be reviewed at: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6329675
There is water at Fletcher’s (miles 2.5 & 12.5) and Glen Echo (mile 7.5).
See everyone bright and early!
WRC’s John Hallett, aka “John the Younger” sez:
I just signed up for this race and created a team for WRC, just in case anyone wants to get a team together. It sounded like a few other people, including John the Elder, plan to run LHH. If we can put a team together, we should be able to dominate the “community/open” team competition if it looks anything like last year.
The team registration for this Grand Prix race closes on Wednesday, June 4.
Joining a team is pretty easy. When you register, the site clearly gives you the option to join an existing team. Then you select the team from a drop-down menu or search for it by name (team name: Washington Running Club).
So be like the Johns: wear you club singlet, have a heart, and race with your club!
