This morning would have been near perfect weather for a long run. If only it were Sunday already! It still looks pretty decent for Sunday morning, so how about a nice 20-mile run?
The planned route will go over the Key Bridge, up the Custis Trail to N. Harrison St, continue through Arlington to Military Rd, and over Chain Bridge to the Towpath. At this point, the pack will likely split between those running roughly 13 miles and those running something closer to 20 miles. If you want to keep it to roughly 13 miles, then turn right on Towpath to head back to Georgetown. For the full 20-mile loop, turn left on Towpath to head towards Glen Echo. We will cross over the canal at around mile 13.5, and head back down MacArthur. The planned route map can be viewed here.
There are water fountains on Custis at around mile 3 and N. Harrison St at around mile 6. There is a water fountain and restroom at around mile 14 in Glen Echo. There is also, of course, water fountain and restroom at Fletcher’s which is roughly 2.5mi from the finish.
Sunday, 0700, in front of CB2 in Georgetown (33rd and M St, NW)!
