Presumptive 2013 WRC Grand Prix series leader, Christine Hackman, assembled a great performance today all throughout the Tidal Basin. Meanwhile, recently joining member and rising star Megan Haberle conquered newer (to her) and longer (than last week‘s) distances further along the same brackish estuary. Megan can take some notes from Suzy Coffey, who is back on the racing scene!

Says Megan about her stellar performance:
I had WRC on the brain while I enjoyed my post-race cappuccino over in National Harbor. No terribly deep insights, but obviously the weather was great and there were some inspiring visually-impaired racers who started us off. (For my part, I’m maybe happiest about my negative splits, something that’s been elusive in my workouts so far.)
El Presidente, Kirk Masterson, reminds us that only one more race remains on the 2013 WRC Grand Prix schedule: Jingle All the Way 8K. Look into it, plan to race with your clubmates, and of course let the GP coordinator, David Pittman, know about your results.
Next weekend promises something completely different, as we turn toward
three four very different kinds of races strewn across the Mid-Atlantic:
- Paul Karlsen will venture far, far into the unknown at the Stone Mill 50 Mile Run
- John Kendra will seek vengeance at the Anthem Richmond Marathon
- Shinobu Kusakabe, Nick Williams, Scott Sanger, and Daisuke Ogata will all compete, with a feeling that can only be described as brotherly love, at the GORE-TEX® Philadelphia Marathon, and Brian Savitch will race in the equally fraternal, waterproof, and breathable Half Marathon.
- Updated: Carla Freyvogle will be leading a WRC masters squad at the USA Masters 12 km Championships in Alexandria, VA, on November 17th.
Great job and good luck to everyone!
