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!
Sat Jun 14, 2014 Lawyers Have Heart 10k—Washington, DC
ONE WEEK AWAY:
Sunday Distance Run—Time Change to 7:00 a.m.
The summer heat and humidity is planning to hold off for another week, so in an effort to beat the heat, we will start our Sunday Distance Run an hour earlier, effective Sunday, June 8, 2014. The 7 a.m. start time will be in effect through August 31st, as reflected on WRC’s calendar.
Here are some still-fresh results, as we transition out of the marathon and into the Summer Loving of middle-long distance road races (in the WRC Grand Prix, of course):
