Good Luck NYC Marathon Runners + Sunday Distance Run!

Marathon Galore

Marathon season is in full swing with Marine Corps Marathon last weekend and the New York City Marathon this weekend! Best of luck to Julia Taylor and John Kendrick this weekend. Both have been incredibly dedicated to their training and we can’t wait to see all that hard work pay off.

Congrats to Mark Lee, Nathan Hauke, and Mike Sanders for their excellent efforts at Marine Corps Marathon! Mark ran 3:40, Nathan a 3:50:07, and Mike edging the 3 hour mark with a 2:59:58. Now, take some quality recovery time and we’ll see you back out at a run sometime soon!

For anyone running a marathon this fall, we’d love to see race reports! Send them our way if you’re interested in posting on the WRC website and Facebook page.

Sunday Distance Run for 11/1

Our next Sunday Distance Run is scheduled for Sunday, November 1 at 8:00 a.m. in front of the CB2 Store in Georgetown. Parking is free on Sunday. Because it’s the first day of the month, we’ll take our First Sunday photo!

We’ll have groups running anywhere from 8-20 miles at 7:00-7:30 min/mile pace, 8:00-8:30 min/mile pace, and 10:00-10:30 min/mile pace. Most of our runs are out and back, so you can easily add on or cut back depending on your weekly requirements.

Afterwards, we’ll meet at Dean and Deluca for coffee, carbs, and conversation.

DON’T FORGET: The clock falls back one hour this weekend, meaning an extra hour of sleep and an even better run (or, more time celebrating Halloween).

Good luck MCM runners + no Sunday Long Run this weekend

Marine Corps Marathon weekend is quickly approaching and it’s one of the most exciting weekends in DC, especially for the runners! I ran past the Iwo Jima memorial yesterday and saw the mile markers ready to be placed throughout the city. Although I’m not running it this year, it still gave me butterflies!

As you can imagine, there will be many road closures this weekend and as such, WRC will not be hosting a Sunday Long Run. We’ll meet back next weekend on November 1.

However, be sure to go out and cheer for our runners as they put their months of hard work to use at MCM! Nathan, Mark, and Mike are running it, along with Walter from Florida who joined us for our happy hour back in June. We’re proud of you and know you’ll do amazing! Have fun out there, runners!
