Update on the New Singlets

The order has been submitted! Estimated delivery date is September 22nd, or whenever they arrive and I schlep them over to the Sunday run.

You can get a better sense of what the singlets will look like from the proofs below.  The colors will be slightly darker than how they appear below. (The outlines depict the different sizes of the singlet.)

Wednesday Interval Workouts

Looking to add some spring to your step? The Crawlers, another DC running club, has extended an open invitation to its weekly Wednesday interval workouts. The group usually meets at 6:30 AM at Banneker track, but they sometimes meet in Woodley Park for hill repeats and they occasionally do an evening track workout. It’s a fun group of people with a nice range of speeds. They don’t have a website, so if you want to learn about upcoming workouts and where they’ll be meeting, send an email to: <Ben (dot) Geman (at) thehill (dot) com> and he’ll add you to the email list.
