Happy Friday, WRC!
I hope you had a great week and ready for a weekend of the two great R’s: running and relaxation. We have a few announcements this week:
WRC runners take on parkrun!
Congrats to former WRC president Kirk Masterson and to Helen Burns for sweeping the parkrun 5k last weekend! Kirk cinched the win in 18:29 – his first race in quite some time and a great race at that! Helen defended her first-place title, cruising to the finish in 19:57. Helen holds the course record of 19:32, and she’ll surely crush it this year!
parkrun is a FREE timed 5k run that takes place every Saturday 9:00 a.m. at Fletcher’s Cove. It’s a great way to test your fitness and get out into the local community. Click here for more info.
Sunday Distance Run
We’re meeting on Sunday, February 28 at 8:00 a.m. As always, we’ll have folks running anywhere from 8-20 miles in the 7:00/7:30, 8:00/8:30, and 10:00/10:30 pace groups, and Jordan Konig, our SDR Coordinator, suggests either the Rock Creek Park or the Tour de Virginia routes. We’ll meet at Dean & Deluca for coffee after the run.
Cherry Blossom teams are a go
Race Coordinator, Julia Taylor, reports that the WRC Cherry Blossom teams are coming together nicely. Stay tuned for the final team roster, and be sure to cheer on our runners at the race on April 3. If you’re not running Cherry Blossom but want to run a race with WRC in the future, send us a message!
Hope to see you on Sunday!
