Meet above the Iwo Jima Memorial or near the Jefferson Memorial for a warmup, tempo run or hill repeats, and cooldown.


Meet at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington at 6:50pm, warmed up and ready for drills, strides, and stretching. We'll participate in the regularly-scheduled club workout (usually or fartlek) at 7:30pm.


Meet at North Meade Street Park in Arlington for a long run (pace varies). Start time corresponds with the club Saturday Long Run.

May 21 HPT tempo run

Enjoy it while you can, because we only have two more weeks of the short tempo runs. 
So, once again, tonight we do the short tempo loop, Iwo -> Jefferson -> Georgetown -> Iwo. 
With 2 miles of tempo between Jefferson and Georgetown. 
I will not be there this evening, but I believe Dylan will (I think and hope).

May 14 HPT Tempo Run

What's up people! It's Monday, TEMPO MONDAY! 
since we are still in "off-season" mode, we are still doing the shorter version of tempo from Jefferson Memorial to Georgetown. 
See you all tonight.

April 30 HPT Tempo Run

Enjoy tonight's mild weather before the 80˚+ highs forecast for the rest of the week. We're running the short route (Iwo-Jefferson-Georgetown-Rosslyn) again.
