Grammy Award Winning Sunday Social Run

Our weather luck seems to have run out, so plan for a cold Sunday social run this week. We’ll gather in front of the CB2 in Georgetown at 8:00, run a bit, and meet back up for coffee and conversation.

Please mark your calendar for our annual meeting and party, which will take place on Saturday evening, March 2. Details are still being finalized, but members in good standing who attend will receive free food, a free drink ticket, and will participate in our annual raffle (with fabulous prizes).

Sunday Run AND a Movie

Come join us for our weekly Sunday Social Run, this Sunday (as always) in front of CB2 in Georgetown at 8:00 am.

Sunday Movie Club this week will feature “Widows,” directed by Academy Award winning director Steve McQueen (“12 Years a Slave”) and starring Viola Davis and many, many, many others. The movie is playing at 10:15 am Sunday at the AMC/Loews Georgetown. I’ve snagged seat E7.

Sunday Run

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.

May 19-Happy Hour and Sunday Run!

Don’t forget to come out to the Happy Hour at the Sculpture Garden this evening (National Gallery of Art, Jazz in the Garden) starting at 4:30. It will be a great time and a chance to say farewell to long-time WRC member Emily Buzzell who is going back to school.

We’ll be meeting on Sunday for our weekly social run.  It looks like the weather will cooperate, so come join us outside of the CB2 in Georgetown at 8:00 am.  Stick around for coffee (almost certainly at Dean and Deluca based on the weather report).  As always, all are welcome, so bring a friend along.
It’s May Membership Drive (kind of like NPR Pledge Drive, but less annoying).  If WRC enriches your life, please become a dues-paying member.  It’s just pennies a day.
Stay tuned for a WRC survey in coming weeks, and our summer Saturday neigborhood runs, starting soon.

Movie Night Reminder and Sunday Run

Hey all,
Another reminder that we will be seeing Boston, An American Running Story, which is playing at the Gallery Place Cinema at April 19 at 7:30 pm. We will hold a happy hour at Clyde’s of Gallery Place nearby, starting at 4 when the drinks and raw bar are half price.

And as usual, join us this Sunday at 8:00 AM in front of the Georgetown CB2 store for our weekly long run! Sweat a lot, get those endorphins roaring, and stick around for coffee, carbs, and conversation afterwards.

WRC Community Service Project + More!

Tomorrow is our WRC community service project from 7:30 am to 10 am. We’ll be helping out with Saturday morning meal preparation at Charlie’s Place in Kalorama (near Dupont Circle). Charlie’s Place is a non-denominational, anti-hunger, homeless ministry of St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church. If you’re able to join us, please rsvp through the Facebook event page.

As always, we meet Sunday for our group run. Still at 8:00 am, still in front of the CB2, still running 4-12 miles, still meeting for coffee and food around 9:15.

WRC Happy Hour, formerly known as Thirsty Thursdays, returns on Thursday March 30 at 5:30 pm. This month’s happy hour location is Dirty Habit DC, 555 8th Street NW, in the Hotel Monaco.

WRC Movie Night is April 19 at the Gallery Place 14 Cinema.
Join your favorite runners for a showing of Boston, An American Running Story. We will hold a happy hour at Clyde’s of Gallery Place nearby, starting at 4 when the drinks and raw bar are half price. The movie starts at 7:30. Tickets to the movie are selling fast, so get yours now.
