Saturday Long Run



I won't be around on Sunday. Instead of trying to muscle my way through a long run while away in a distant land, I'm going to get it out of the way on Saturday. I plan to run from the store at 8:30am with the group...head up Glover Arch to Van Ness (the end) and cut back up through Rock Creek Park...but ending at the Canal rather than worming my way up through Georgetown (like we usually do). I will add on along the Canal and possibly open the stride a bit there. I am looking for companionship. The goal is 14-15. Easy for the first 7...then a gradual pick-up once we leave the trails and hit RCP. Do it!

Not sure I'm up for quite that long... any way I could peel off somewhere and make it 11ish?

No love for the Gar? Half marathon out-n-back along Mt V trail starting in Belle Haven, Alexandria. They give out free socks, free drinking mugs, good times. Course isn't all that exciting, but ITS ALL GOOD.

Folks - Tomorrow, I am going to start running at 8:30am sharp...as I need to leave the GRC at 10:15am in order to catch a flight. I'd like to get in 15 miles. It'll be TIGHT.

Yes, Alex - you can easily do 11. I think that is what the loop will be. I am going to add on when I get back to the store.

Was this call for punctuality targeted toward someone specifically?

You betcha!

8:34am - Text Message from Patrick Reaves to Jake Klim: "I'll be 5 minutes late"

8:43am - Patrick Reaves arrives...in street clothes

8:51am - Patrick emerges from bathroom in running attire

8:53am - Patrick returns to "use" bathroom

9:01am - run starts

I'm iffy for the run tomorrow - something's not feeling right near my left patella, so I'll have to see how it feels in the morning. Gonna try to make it though.
