GRC takes to the streets tomorrow at 8:30AM for the Rock n' Roll DC Half Marathon. On the men's side, competitors include Kieran, Graham, Evan, David McKay, Charlie, Dave O'Hara, and Balmer. Meanwhile, Kerry, Maura C, Julie T, Greta, and Mary Grace will comprise a dominant squad for the women!

Kieran is in excellent shape, and ready to run a strong race, as long as he doesn't stop to watch too many of the concerts. Graham, Evan, David M, and Dickson are all preparing for April marathons, and if training is any indication they should all run very strong races. Kerry is also in great shape, and should be in contention to win this year after a couple of runner up performances in prior years. Greta is aiming to run a PR, which looks increasingly within reach.
