Saturday LONG Run



Once again I need to get my long run out of the way on Saturday. I am going to run from the GRC Store at 9am* and run for about 2 hours; likely up the Towpath, up Ernst Hill, down the zoo, through RCP and back to the Store. I am sure I will need to throw in a monument or two (or TR Island) to get to 17 or 18. There will be lots of departure points for people who want to run less.

*in the event that the weather appears to be scorching, I may move the run down to 8am. Would anyone be game? I am sure the decision would be made mid-day by Friday.

Maybe PMurphy can set up Gatorade at the bottom of Zoo Hill again?

Would you mind clarifying what and where Ernst Hill is?

Ernst Hill begins at the interesection of MacArthur Blvd and Loughboro Rd and ends (approx) at Mass Ave

Coincidentally, I was driving back from the towpath this morning and saw Ernst flying down Loughboro.

Looking forward to catchin' a long run with you guys but this Saturday is hectic move-in girlfriend day. Will have to run long on Sunday, hope to get back out on Wednesday.

Are you guys okay running at 9am? I am, if you are. TWC says the temps will be 75 (feels like 75) at 9am, so we should be okay.

Additionally, the route I propose is fairly shaded.

Though, I suggest we all get to the store at 8:45 and leave by 9am SHARP.

If anyone is late, we'll be running pretty slow north along the Towpath.

8:45 works for me.

Will be there.

I'll be there. Do we have any idea how many people will be running the full loop by the zoo? I'd like to know how many Gatorades to put out.

Sam said...

I'll be there. I'm going to plan on the full loop, but it is likely I'll have to bail early.

I am guessing 10.
