Mike Wardian is doing a talk at the Chevy Chase Store at 8:30am on Saturday morning. I am going to go and then get in my long run instead of doing it on Sunday (per the FD8K). I think PMurphy is joining me for 2 hours or so. We could run down the CCT and loop back through Rock Creek Park/Conn/Wisconsin. For those who want to run an hour, we can craft a loop for you as well. Any interest?
Below is the Store plug for this event:
Come to the Chevy Chase Running Company on Saturday, June 19th to meet local running champion Mike Wardian. Mike is pound for pound, one the DC Region's greatest runners ever. He has run for many years at a high level and his range of distance covers the 5k to ultra marathons. He is a passionate runner, father and husband and does all of these endeavors while balancing a full time job. Come and learn about how and why he chooses to live his life this way.
We will begin the day by meeting Mike and his family at the store at 830am. From there we will go on a nice and easy 45 minute run with Mike and the kids. Upon the conclusion of the run, Mike will entertain questions about his life and running.
The run is free and open to all. There will be post run refreshments served.
The Chevy Chase Running Company is located at 4461 Willard Ave in Chevy Chase, MD. It is a five minute walk from the Friendship Heights Metro and is across from Whole Foods.
