Hey

whats up. My name is Joe Wiegner. I met Jake Klim at the Shamrock 5k in Baltimore 2 weeks ago and he talked to me about the georgetown running co and sent me an email to be a part of this blog. I live in Germantown and have been running solo since I moved down to maryland from philadelphia (in the summer). I went to JMU with Ben for a year (he was a senior, i was a frosh). I talked to ben about the club a while back but with my busy schedule starting up my first year as a teacher, I didn't have too much time to run earlier this fall/winter. Ben, i apoligize for not getting back to you sooner... it has been crazy with my job and helping to plan a wedding for june. Recently I have gotten back into it and am racing again.... I am really looking for an organized team to race with/maybe meet up with 2 times a week or so to run/workout with. As you all know, its tough to stay motivated when your running solo. I previously ran with the Brooks Manhattan TC and after leaving philadelphia, the distance was too far to get up to the city on weekends... I really want to get involved with this team cause Ben and Jake both have told me some good things about the club. I just wanted to introduce myself and say that I look forward to meeting everyone.
Also, I wasn't sure who is up for running any track meets this spring but I was looking at possibly running at the U of MD meet in two weeks (as a workout).
See you soon,
Joe Wiegner

Joe is good people...I am glad he'll be running with us. He dusted me in the 5k running a blistering 15:0something and ran a 25:0something last weekend at Shamrock in VA Beach.

We haven't done our Saturday runs in awhile bc most of the guys have been racing on the weekends. I think we'll start up again in April after Cherry Blossom. At least I hope we will.

Jason, me and Steve Money are running marathons in May/June. The rest of the guys are either running marathons this weekend or at Boston and/or will probably be gearing up for a spring/summer "surge".

Don't believe a word Joe says. He's been living down here for the better part of a year and I have only seen him once now. And then he goes and moves to freakin Germantown or something like that. Not cool man.
