April 23 HPT Tempo runs

Hey everyone, it's tempo Monday. 
I hope all of you are ready to run on an absolutely gorgeous night. 
As you probably know, we are going to keep it to shorter tempo runs until mid-June, when the fall program targeted at MCM will start. 
For now simply enjoy not killing yourself every Monday, until the inevitable summer misery arrives. 

Marathon Monday HPT Tempo Run

Happy Marathon Monday everyone. 
Most of our friends already dropped their bags so they won't get this message, but good luck and kick ass anyway. 
for those of you who want to watch live, you can do so here.
if you don't have a Comcast account, let me know and I will set up a special feed. 
As for tonight's tempo, same as all the time... The short route Iwo-Jefferson-Georgetown-Rosslyn.
