Invasion of Northern Virginia

I call on all of you (or really whoever wants to) to cross the Potomac with me on Saturday night and take on the Evil Pacers in their home court. I dare not advertise the race here, but we all know what it is and where it is. Let's attack while we are hot and beat them backwards. Actually, there is no team competition, but either way, it will be a fun scrimmage of sorts.

Current Team UPDATED

Chris Sloane
Jake Klim
Dirk de Heer
Nate Timm

Dickson Mercer
Patrick Murphy
Patrick Reaves
Lindsey Jerdonek

"I propose to fight it out on this line if it takes all Summer."
- Ulysses S. Grant, during his Virginia Campaign of 1864

I am getting a root canal Wednesday afternoon, so I will miss the afternoon workout. In other words, regarding Saturday, I. Am. In.

Lindsey Jerdonek said...

I will run, as well.

Whoa LJ taking to the pavement, get after it!

What and where is the race? Sorry, I'm a newbie and am not familiar with the gtown/pacer rivalry lol. But I am interested in possibly racing sometime this weekend.

Nate said...

It's a 5K in Arlington, VA. Details of where we will meet will probably be posted soon.

This website should answer all your questions.

KLIM said...

I plan to get to the race at 6:30pm and make my way to the starting line for a warm-up at 7pm SHARP.

Race starts at 8pm.

Rachel - we'd love to have you.

I'm officially in for the "5k of Northern Aggression."

See y'all there.

Thanks for the info!

Hopefully I will not have too much homework this weekend and will be able to figure out transportation to the race...I will let you all know if I can make it out :)

Spoken like a true son of the south PR.

Pacers formally endorse John Wilkes Booth.

Will Towpath Productions/GRCTV be covering the battle? Some Gettysburg music would be very dramatic in a video :)
