March 20 HPT Tempo run

Happy first day of spring all, let's go run and see some cherry blossoms!
Tonight's tempo run calls for 42 minutes worth of tempo, which is a lot, but just think of how good it is for you. 
For the most part the run will be the standard long tempo:
Start from Iwo Jima at 6:30
Warm-up to Jefferson Memorial along Mt. Vernon Trail
Start tempo from Jefferson at 6:55
Tempo counter clockwise around HP to Georgetown
Cool-down from Georgetown to Rosslyn
See you tonight

Christie Wenzel WON the RnR marathon in 3:04
Rodrigo got his first BQ at RnR finishing just behind his wife in 3:04
Alex Albertini ran a 3 minute PR in the half in 1:24
Rochelle ran the Gate River Run (US 15K Champs) in 56:57

Tonight's tempo run is one of the longest we will do all year, 39 minutes total. But thankfully it looks like we will get done just before the snow starts. 
See you all there.
