Long Run–SUNDAY LONG RUN TIME CHANGE: With summer waning and temperatures dropping, let’s move our long run start time back to 8am. Starting September 12, WRC long runs will begin at 8 am. Meet on the corner of 33rd and M in Georgetown. Meet for coffee at Dean and Deluca after the run.

We want to hear all of your race results, run related stories, and see your race and run photos so we can share all of your news with the club. Also, if you are interested in writing a race report or another article, let us know. Please e-mail information and photos to Tamma at tammaanne@gmail.com
REMINDER: Smoothies after the long run THIS SUNDAY, Oct. 3rd!

We’ve got the yogurt, ice, blender, and rooftop patio in Georgetown! Grab some post-run coffee at Dean & Deluca and then bring your own fruit, protein powder, etc. to Alex’s studio on N St. (Between Wisconsin and 33rd). If the weather is chilly or rainy we will reschedule.

What: Make your own smoothies in the sun
Where: 3230 N St. NW, Apt. 7
