I'll be at the Cordoza High School track tonight at 6:30 to do mile repeats if anyone wants to join me in getting interval work in (doesn't have to be mile repeats, feel free to do your own thing). The high school is in the U Street area (map here - if you set it to satellite view you can see the track, entrance on the 13th street side).
If you plan on joining me, leave a comment, send an email, shoot me a text... so that I know to look for you.

Hope to see you there!
p.s. Just an FYI, we are in communication with another local establishment about hosting our happy hours elsewhere after this week. We hope to have a new location (still right in the Friendship Heights neighborhood) within the next week or so. Will keep you posted. For tonight, we'll be at Lia's.

Also, I don't know how many of you had the privilege of meeting Ian when he was working at the Chevy Chase Running Company Store over the summer, but he ran an outstanding debut marathon time of 2:49.
If anyone has any photos of our runners, please send them to either Chris or me~ Thanks! And congrats again to our runners!

If you are like me and don't have a spiffy Garmin to keep track of your pace, nor do you want to have to do all the math during the race in order to figure out if you're on pace to run your goal time, you can create your own pace bracelet! And it's free. Just go here.
Type in your goal time, and it will spit out a nifty PDF file with your marathon pace bracelet-- print itout & laminate using clear packing tape, and you have your own customized, waterproof (for the most part) pace bracelet. Old-school, but it gets the job done.

Came across this event and thought it might interest many in GRC:
"An invitation is being extended to runners of all abilities and interest for an evening of inspiring stories which will inspire you to achieve your running fitness goals. The callenges of running may not be obvious until you lace up your shoes. What are the influences in your life that shape your running schedule and other priorities? Do you have to set a "Personal Record" in every race? Is it important to listen to your body when you run?
The evening of conversation will be held at The North Face Store, 3333 M Street, NW (202-298-5510) The session will be on Wednesday, September 8th, 6:30-8:30 p.m." Speakers will include: Michael Wardian, Elyse Braner, Alisa Harvey, and George Banker. You can find the speaker bios and more information on the event HERE. (Washington Running Report)
And since it's this coming Wednesday from 6:30-8:30, you can still make it to the GRC Happy Hour after the event!
