Weekend Runs

Dickson and I are running the CCT-RCP Loop (21 miles) on Sunday morning at 8:30am. Starting at Barnes & Noble in Bethesda, then head down the CCT, cross over to the C&O Towpath, run past the Gtown Store, left on Rock Creek Parkway, back up to The Line and then take the Georgetown Branch Trail back to Barnes & Noble.

SEE ROUGH MAP HERE - this can be adjusted/amended to go more/less.

If you want to run 20+ this is a good one. If you want to join in for part of the fun, you might be able to jump on our train at a few different places (ie - the Store which is roughly mile 7)

I'm running the usual 10 from the Store on Saturday at 9am.

I am running the exactly same route on Sat AM, start at 6:30 or so.

However, what pace you guys going to run on Sun? I might end up running it on Sunday, if Satursday is going to rain in the morning...

Frank - I don't think I will be much faster than 7:00 miles for the first 10. Probably even slower for the first 7. I plan to take it easy in the beginning for sure. This is a high mileage week for me, so I am playing it by ear. We *might* pick it up after 90 mins, but we'll have to see how we're feeling.

We're meeting at 8:30am at Barnes & Noble.

cool!! Assuming I will join you guys, is that possible to move the start time to before 7:30?

KLIM said...

Frank - what's with you running at 4am?

Jake,

I guess that is 'no'; but you know it is summer and it is going to very warm after 8:30. I suppose "we" like to run when is less warm. So running before 7:30am, it is cooler. it is only an hour early; I am not going to run at 4 o'clock.

Anyway, maybe another time, I'll run with you guys.

Thanks anyway.

You are smart to run in the early am. Most of us are too lazy to wake up any earlier than we need to. I personally prefer to get extra rest vs. running in warmer weather.

Can anyone who lives along this route hide a couple Gatorades? I have a feeling thirst will come a callin'. I will run down to the LINE tomorrow morning and put something out there as well.

I will stash some near zoo or porter street in RCP.
