In lieu of this week’s Sunday Distance Run, we will be cheering on the marathoners!
I will be staking out a spectating spot for the MCM and would love to have other non-racing WRC members join me. The spot will be the 16 mile marker, which is also about 10.5. It is at the entrance area of Hains Point.
I will be joining Joey Plank and Bethany Pribila as they cheer for their team Team Racing for Veterans (R4V). Some folks may remember them from their handful of runs with us prior to their move to Minneapolis. They worked hard to establish this charity. The mission of R4V is: to support the rehabilitation of and provide opportunities for veterans in the United States through their involvement in athletics, races and adaptive sports.
Joey and Bethany have invited us to join their celebratory party at World of Beer in Arlington, VA from Noon to 4 PM (901 N. Glebe RD 105, Arlington, VA 22203).
An exciting day! Good luck to all runners!
