2014 MCM—Race Day Plans

Beyond this week’s Sunday Distance Run, we will be cheering on the marathoners!

I will be staking out two spectating spots for the MCM and would love to have other non-racing WRC members join me. The first spot will be at Mile 4.2, upon the Key Bridge. The second spot will be the 16 mile marker, which is also about 10.5. It is at the entrance area of Hains Point. I plan to sneak in some training miles between these two points of interest.

Megan Haberle is planning to hover between miles 15.2/17, off 15th st, on the other side of the Tidal Basin, to provide complete race day coverage.

Kendall Hope Tucker is returning from Boston for the race weekend, and has invited WRCers (marathoners and supportors alike) to a mostly mandatory post-race drink-up at The Mad Hatter DC just south of Dupont Circle, from 3 PM onward (1319 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington DC 20036).

Good luck to all runners!

LHH 10k Team Sign-Up

WRC’s John Hallett, aka “John the Younger” sez:

I just signed up for this race and created a team for WRC, just in case anyone wants to get a team together. It sounded like a few other people, including John the Elder, plan to run LHH. If we can put a team together, we should be able to dominate the “community/open” team competition if it looks anything like last year.

The team registration for this Grand Prix race closes on Wednesday, June 4.

Joining a team is pretty easy. When you register, the site clearly gives you the option to join an existing team. Then you select the team from a drop-down menu or search for it by name (team name: Washington Running Club).

So be like the Johns: wear you club singlet, have a heart, and race with your club!

WRC Four Teams Strong for Boston

We’ve made it through a pretty brutal winter, pushing each other through many long, hard, wet, and cold miles together. Spring is finally here which means Boston is near! 

We have expanded greatly from last year’s Men’s Open and Women’s Open team entries. This year, perhaps for the first time in the club’s long history, WRC has officially entered team entries for all four Boston Marathon team categories. We have a very strong Women’s Open team with 8 team members competing! The other three team entries are 3 member each, for a total of 17 runners! 

All can be tracked from the Boston Marathon’s AT&T Athlete Alert. Please also see The One Fund for information regarding donation & assistance for victims & their families that were most impacted by last year’s tragedy.

The current team entries are as follows:

Women's Open - Emily Buzzell, Lauren Gabler, Olga Gorodetsky, 
               Laura Jennings, Jenny Paul, Lucy Rogers, 
               Stephanie Selmer, and Katie Tomlinson

Men's Open - Drew Killian, Max Lockwood, and Brian Savitch

Women's Masters - Shinobu Kusakabe, Lydia Pelliccia, and Julia Taylor

Men's Masters - John Kendra, Jim Moore, and Jay Wind

If you are a current team member running the Boston Marathon and are not on the team entries listed below, then please let us know (if you have not already done so) by emailing! We are also organizing a social gathering (within a short walk of the finish area) for much needed post-race recovery.

Good luck to everyone!
