Laurel Highlands Ultra 70 miler, June 8th, 2002, Ohiopyle, PA

We have not seen Bryon Powell of late. We have heard rumors of him running the streets of DC late at night, when he shares the city with insomiacs e  & Marion Barry. It seems that Bryon has been doing quite a bit of late night running. At the Laurel Highlands Ultra on June 8th (70 frigging miles) he took 5th in a time of 14:55Says Bryon (an an email aptly titled Abject Stupidity)

“I set of from Ohiopyle, PA on the Laurel Highlands trail in the aptly named Laurel Highlands Trail Race.  14 hours and 55 mintes later, just as the sunset, I crossed the finishline outside of Johnstown, PA.  Overall it was… an experience.  You should all try it sometime.”

Bryon, we will take your word for it. And good job!.

Georgetown Class of 2001 Update

Clubnews has word from two of our G’town 2001 graduates, Katherine Turner & Julia Jacoby. Both of these women trained with us in 1999-2000, introducing some welcome youth and humor to the Sunday run. After finishing first year at Harvard Law School, Katherine will be spending the summer in Philadelphia, her ancestral stomping ground. Katherine tells us:

“I will be working at the Juvenile Law Center in Philadelphia.  The JLC protects the rights of children who have come under the purview of various state agencies (foster children, those involved in the juvenile justice system, children expelled from schools under zero tolerance policies, children entitled to certain substantive and procedural provisions under IDEA, etc).  The JLC does some trial advocacy, but mainly pursues appellate advocacy and attempts to effect policy changes.”

Katherine also hopes to do Chicago Marathon in OctoberAnd Julia is returning to DC after a year in Beantown join the Foreign Service. Julia tells us

“I start Foreign Service  training on July 1 in DC!  So I’ll be moving back to the area in the last week of June!  I’ve really missed being a part of a running club and training on a regular basis.  In fact, I haven’t done any racing or serious training since last year so I’m looking forward to getting back into it.”

We welcome Julia back.Going Back to Rockville
