We have ordered up a dry and windy morning for tomorrow’s 8:00 am social run. Come join us in front of CB2, burn a few pre-Thanksgiving calories, and then spend a few quality moments with us at Dean & Deluca after the run.
November WRC Happy Hour at Sauf Haus in Dupont Circle! Don’t miss the regaling of recent Marathon war stories—Chicago, MCM, NYC, and others—replete with graphic accounts of suffering (you will feel like you were there!) and undeniably compelling excuses for missed performance goals!
Sauf Haus is an authentic German beer garden with a huge patio, communal tables & imported brews on tap & by bottle. It is highly recommended by WRC’er Pat O’Keefe. As an added attraction, that day is also “Acoustic Thursday”, featuring singer-songwriter Katie Hargrove, beginning at 7:30.
Please be prepared for some road closures on your way to WRC’s 8:00 am social run tomorrow morning. The Marine Corps Marathon will cause some road closures near our CB2 meeting spot, but the group has traditionally met on MCM Sunday, so I expect that if you’re able to make it, there will be some others there as well. It sounds like most of the WRC board will be racing tomorrow or out of town, so don’t wait around for us!
WRC also has an opportunity to assist with the Georgetown Half Marathon on October 29. We have been asked to provide the race with a handful of WRC volunteers to staff three water stops on the course from approximately 8:00 am until (at the latest) noon. Our participation would mean a generous contribution to WRC’s financial health. If you are at all interested in helping out (or for more information), email our treasurer, James Scarborough, at email@example.com, and copy me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We’re back for another edition of Sunday running, this week at 8:00 am. We’ll meet in front of the CB2 in Georgetown and go from there. Coffee and conversation at Dean & Deluca following the run.
Make sure to check out our race calendar at washrun.org. And while you’re there, think about starting or renewing a membership to WRC for 2017.
Speaking of races, Marine Corps Marathon is just 10 days away!
OK, deep breath taken, here’s your usual weekly data download from our illustrious prez…
We’ll be running on Sunday morning from CB2 at 8:00 am, rain or shine. Come join us for the run, and stick around for coffee at Dean & Deluca.
Good luck to any and all who are racing the Portland Marathon, Chicago Marathon, or Army 10-Miler this weekend!
Doing an awesome beer garden this month, to tune up for our real beer garden next month for Octoberfest (training is everything!). Come on out and hoist a stein with your best running buds!
Friday, September 29th, 6pm.
Our Sunday Social Run takes place tomorrow morning at 8:00 am. Meet in front of the CB2 in Georgetown, and reunite at the Dean & DeLuca for coffee after the run.
If you’re looking for an early start, or need a few extra miles, some WRC folks will meet at 7:00 am in front of the CB2.
Vice President Silver L. will preside while I get my elliptical on, and I’ll catch up with everyone at D&D at around 9:30.
Don’t forget about our community race calendar on the WRC website if you’re looking for a local race to run.
