This morning, we began distributing pre-ordered 2013 Series singlets
and they look terrific! Several club members slipped into these slices of awesome on-the-spot
. So much for modesty.
The custom singlets (and their owners) got lots of attention, fetching compliments along the various training routes followed by the dozens of runners convening on this perfect morning.
Our thanks go to Rachel Clattenburg for designing and ordering everything, and also to Pactimo for all their good work.
Pending enough demonstrated interest, we can place another round of orders with relatively quick turnaround. If this interests you, please petition el Prez, Kirk Masterson, and let him know.
Come pick up your pre-ordered 2013 Series singlet at a Sunday Distance Run, starting this coming Sunday, September 22nd.
Sunday Distance Run Time Change to 8:00 a.m.
Sunday is going to be a perfect day, so to embrace the moment we will start our Sunday Distance Run an hour later, effective Sunday, September 8, 2013. The 8 a.m. start time will be in effect through spring of 2014, as reflected on WRC’s calendar. Watch out for triathlon-related traffic.
Good luck to Parks Half Marathon racers
Julia Taylor is captain of the squad headed up to Rockville to squiggle their way down to Bethesda. Some of the marathoners rehearsed the final two miles of this course last weekend. This race is part of WRC’s 2013 Grand Prix series. Good luck to them all!
Don’t miss the Cookout and Pool Party!
If you haven’t already done so, let Carla know you’re coming to the Cookout and Pool Party! You didn’t think we’d let the remaining good weather go to waste, did you?
The order has been submitted! Estimated delivery date is September 22nd, or whenever they arrive and I schlep them over to the Sunday run.
You can get a better sense of what the singlets will look like from the proofs below. The colors will be slightly darker than how they appear below. (The outlines depict the different sizes of the singlet.)
Daylight Savings Time ends Sunday, November 4, 2012. Set your clocks back and enjoy the extra hour of sleep so you are ready to tackle the challenges and merriment of the WRC Sunday Distance Run.
These road closures may impact your ability to get to the WRC Sunday Distance Run, so plan accordingly! The Army Ten Miler is on Sunday, October 21, 2012 (8 a.m. start).

Fall is in the air and the record heat of the summer is a memory. Effective immediately, the Sunday Distance run will return to its regularly scheduled time of 8:00 a.m. That means that on Sunday, September 23, 2012, we start at 8 a.m. in our usual spot, the north side of the 3300 block of M Street, NW, D.C. in front of the CB2 store.
