MCRRC Firebirds Mile

The Firebirds Mile @ Gaithersburg high school is this wednesday April 14th. I have been going back and forth on whether or not to stick to the plan of using this race just as a hard workout (being that the mile will be a hard effort, followed by a 2-3 mile @ 10mile race pace). I finally decided yesterday that I am going to stick to my plan (prior to getting sick last week). If anyone wants to make a workout out of this event, there will be company in Klim, Karl and myself.
Information is at the following link www.mcrrc.org/races/firebirdsmile

I'd like to race, how is everyone getting up there? If someone can give me a ride from the red line that would be great.

Chuck, I can pick you up at the Shady Grove Metro tomorrow. i would like to be there no later than 6:30... as the registration closes at 7:00 and that is also when heat 1 starts (we have about 1 hour from heat 1 until heat 8- the "fast" heat that we will be in). Could you work it out for me to pick you up at Shady Grove Metro at 6:00pm? My cell is 215-913-3481. FYI: besides chuck, I can drive an additional 3 people from shady grove metro to Gaithersburg High School and back post race/ workout.

Joe I can leave straight from Chinatown at 5:30 so I can be up there as fast as the train can get me there, so it might be closer to 6:15. My number is 717.713.1828

Just FYI for both of you, MCRRC races are pretty low-key so you need not be in a big rush to get to registration.

6:15 is about right... about 45 minutes from chinatown to shady grove. I will be at the station around 6ish... call me/text me when you get out. Red VW GTI
