Monday Night Runs

Please note: Monday Night FootMall is held every week, other than on Federal holidays or otherwise noted.

This free weekly run is a great way to get in some additional mileage to add to your total for the week. This out-and-back run is an especially attractive option for dark winter evenings, as it is a well-lit and transited route, much of the surface is soft gravel, and it is mostly flat with two good training hills. All paces are welcome. Most weeks the run is led by Coaches Sasha and Jay.

We begin by meeting and stretching in the lobby of Potomac Plaza Apartments, a block and a half away from the Foggy Bottom metro, at about 6:30 pm. At 6:45 pm, we head out down Virginia Avenue toward the Lincoln Memorial, loop up and around the Capitol Building, and then head back to Potomac Plaza Apartments for a total distance of 6.5 miles. Those who want a shorter run may instead loop around the Washington Monument, for a total of 3 miles, or take advantage of several other turnaround points along the Mall for a different total mileage.

Upon return to Potomac Plaza at around 8:00, sometimes we proceed on foot to 51st State Tavern, on Pennsylvania and 25th Street, for 50-cent tacos and $2.75 Buds or whatever your choice of beverage, or to Chadwick's on the waterfront in Georgetown, for half-price burgers and beer. You may leave dry clothes at Potomac Plaza to change into after the run.

Monday Night FootMall Update - November 8, 2010

Hello Monday Night FootMallers and Welcome New Spring Marathon Trainees!

Coach Kate will be leading this Monday night's run and Coaches Jay, Kyle and Sasha look forward to meeting up with you next week.

Please be aware that there will be a board meeting going on in the club room we usually use to store bags, stretch and change.  

Go ahead and gather outside or if too cold stick to the right side of the lobby being conscientious of the ongoing meeting.  You can give your items to the front desk attendant to stow behind the front desk and ask to use the restroom if needed.

Also, you probably want to bring something dry and warm to change into in general and especially if you decide to join the group for some post-run grub.

Enjoy and have a safe run!

Coach Sasha
