Good Day everyone,
I hope everyone has had a great weekend
First, congrats to Jeff and Brad for running the Rockville Twilight
8k!! From the results, it looks like you both ran very solid races!!
I’d be eager to hear how the race went? Was it hot like in years past?
Secondly, let’s meet up at Bannecker on Thursday for a track workout
this time. Thanks for letting us go on the roads last Thursday. That
was a nice break. This week, let’s combine some longer stuff with
some shorter stuff. For instance, 2 x 1600, 2 x 800, and 2 x 400.
Thirdly, we currently have two teams interested in the Baltimore
Marathon Relay Team. A Men’s team (Ben, Sam, Shaggy and Charlie) is
already registered. I believe a women’s team (Kelly, Melissa, Annie,
and Melanie) is about to be registered. I know Paul and Gareth would
be interested to be part of a team. Would 2 other crawlers be
interested in creating another men’s team or another co-ed team?
Also, teams should register soon before the price goes up. It’s truly
a fun event! And I also know that other crawlers, like Andy, are
considering running the Baltimore Half which is part of the same day’s
Fourth, I was thinking of having a long run for this Saturday. Maybe,
we could do a metro run. Where we meet at Cardozo around 6:15 and run
through Georgetown, hop on the Mt Vernon trail, and end up at the King
St Station in Alexandria, where we could have some refreshments/brunch
before we hop on the metro and head back. It’s about 13 and people
can add on more if they’d like to run a loop around Teddy Roosevelt
Finally, last week marked the beginning of a new chapter for one of
the original Crawlers, Michael Myers, who now lives in NYC with his
lovely wife (and ultra marathoner Kay!). I saw Mike recently and he
still loves being a part of the group, and says that he and Kay may
begin a Crawler Chapter in the Big Apple! We couldn’t be happier for
them and will be rooting them on-line as they run NYC marathon this
Finally, finally, there’s a new running store in Logan Circle. It’s a
Pacers on P st btw 14th and 15th. I went over last week, told them
about the Crawlers, and said we might be interested in possible
partnerships if they were planning to host any races in the
neighborhood. They were excited to hear about us and said they would
keep us posted.
I hope you’re all well.
