Thirsty Third Thursday Happy Hour – March 17
Our next Thirsty Third Thursday Happy Hour will be on Thursday, March 17. Yes, it’s St. Patrick’s Day and no, we won’t be going to an Irish bar. We’ll meet at 6:00 p.m. at Iron Horse Tap Room in Chinatown. Green apparel optional. See you then!
Next Sunday Distance Run – March 13 (Daylight Savings edition)
Yes, it’s true, our next SDR occurs on daylight savings, which means we’ll get one less hour of sleep leading up to our long runs. We’ll still meet at 8:00 a.m. in front of CB2 (3307 M Street NW) with 7:00/7:30, 8:00/8:30, and 10:00/10:30 pace groups. Each group will run between 8 and 20 miles, route TBD. The good news is we’ll meet for coffee at Dean & Deluca, and you won’t even know you lost an hour of sleep 🙂
As a reminder, all registered members of WRC will receive a hat. Be sure to come to a run to claim yours!
