We are happy to report that WRC has secured a nice agreement with the powers that be at American University. Starting on September 3rd, we are welcome to use the lovely, sheltered track at AU from 6 until 7:30 am. Every Tuesday.
For those of you who remember, WRC had informal track practices there a few years ago. Our numbers ranged from 3 to 8. Never a huge showing but enough folks that you felt a certain comfort and support being with the gang. And then there was the gentle pressure to step it up a bit.
We do not really know how this will evolve in terms of setting workouts. Perhaps what will happen is conversations between members on similar training cycles and at comparable levels. Then, there are those of us who might join in for fragments of intervals.
The AU track is a very nice surface. There is plenty of water and a cute gazebo with a bench and shade. There is a real bathroom and plenty of parking that is available until 8 am. Also, the surrounding neighborhoods offer some quiet streets for warm down shuffles.
