Meet above the Iwo Jima Memorial at 6:30 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.

November 12 HPT tempo run

Congratulations to the Richmond marathoners who took advantage of the excellent weather:

  • Noah 2:50
  • Kyle 3:01
  • Anna 3:04
  • Arielle 3:09
  • Brian 3:15
  • Franco 3:59

I'll be at Iwo Jima tonight, we can decide what we're doing when we get to the Jefferson Memorial.


November 5 HPT Tempo Run

Hey everyone, welcome to the dreariest of dreary Mondays. 
It's the first Monday of the month, so in theory, tonight would be a hill workout. But I am willing to bet that most people who are actually going to show up have no intention or will to run hill repeats. 
That said, if you really want to run hills we can do that. Or we can just do the simple Jefferson loop. OR OR if it's still pouring, we can just run loops under the Whitehurst Freeway. I guess we will see how the weather is this evening.

October 29 HPT Tempo run

First of all congrats to all of you who ran Marie Corps Marathon
Bobby with his 5 minute PR at 2:44 
Miguel Matta at 3:03 
Ian at 3:21
RIP Mike Tosto's foot may it rise again like a phoenix in mid-December.
Also, Bobby claims he ran really hard but judging by this photo he was taking it far too easy. 
Tonight is an ad-hoc kinda night. 
Richmond folks should still be doing 30 minutes of tempo. Philly should be doing 45. Everyone else should be taking a little time off. 
Se ya tonight, it's gonna be nice.
