A chill in the air at the start of the Army Ten Miler meant WRC would be racing in ideal conditions. Add to that the wounded warriors participating in the race today to make a memorable race experience. Now for the unofficial nuts and bolts:

Hillary Tipton with be racing with many of her WRC teammates at the 2013 Marine Corps Marathon next Sunday. Daisuke Ogata will be be racing at the MCM10K next Sunday, in preparation for the Philadelphia Marathon on November 17th.
Parting is such sweet sorrow. We wish our friend, the B.A.A.’s Jonathan Baker (top row, 4th from right, in his silvery adidas muscle tee), safe travels as he meanders back North to Boston.
Standing two places to Jonathan’s left is WRC’s Ben Stutts, who raced a neat 4:46.86 on the tartan at the DCRRC’s 2013 Track Championship Mile Heats on Wednesday (results). And standing to Ben’s left is newest club member, Paul Karlsen of London, originally of Scotland, who has yet to make his American tarmacadam racing debut (here’s why), but is preparing for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.
Everyone else ran about a million muggy miles, in anticipation of this coming Thursday’s Thirst Quencher.
Off to a good looking earlier start for the summer!
The good Doctor Tris, not pictured, wires in his absence slip:
I’ll be at a lake accessible by float plane, on a remote lake, in Alaska. I’ll be trail running, as there are no roads. We’ll start at the old time.
Esquire Daniel Yi, also not pictured, was caught finishing in Pietermaritzburg, RSA, as the top American at the Comrades Marathon. According to Gerry Ives, Dan ran 6:48:18, 79th overall, 76th male, 51st in his age group. That story is developing.
Rachel Clattenburg, likely recovering from her win at The North Face Endurance Challenge 50K on Saturday, is not among those pictured above. Rachel’s time of 5:05:05 gave her the win under incredibly hot conditions; Laura Jennings braved the heat as well to finish as the 68th female. More details to follow. Continue reading
It’s officially spring and our highly accurate weather forecasters are predicting chilly temperatures. Regardless, spring racing season is heating up and it’s a perfect time to gather to discuss Grand Prix strategy at Capitol City Brewing Company (1100 New York Avenue NW, D.C. 20005) from 6 – 8 p.m. I’ll see you there!
