Sep 9 HPT Tempo Run

Hey Everyone, It's September, running weather is starting to get a little better and some races have begun, so let's start with some congrats and kudos (or not). 

Huge congrats to Carrie on her PR in Erie 3:13

Bobby also ran some portion of Erie, but I am told that he decided that their prize money was not high enough and instead will be asking Randy for a leg amputation soon. 

We are going to run 36 minutes worth of tempo tonight which means that we are going to run the longest version of tempo, counterclockwise around Hains Point. As always when we do this watch out for traffic when you have to cross the Ohio Drive - Basin Drive intersection. 

In other Hains Point news, this would be awesome https://thefriedegg.com/doak-hanse-east-potomac-rock-creek/ 

See you all tonight. 

 

August 26 HPT Tempo Run

Who's excited for temperatures under 80˚?

We're up to 33 minutes of tempo for tonight, which means that we will begin the tempo portion of the run at the 14th Street Bridge overpass, run all the way around Hains Point clockwise, and gather back up at the corner of Virginia Avenue and Rock Creek Parkway. Like last week, people who finish first should make their way to Thompson Boat Center water hose and wait for the rest of us there.

 

August 19 HPT Tempo Run

Welcome to Monday, everyone! after a decidedly steamy weekend, looks like we are going to have a steamy week too.
 
That said with a few working water fountains, and more importantly, water hoses with real water pressure, we should be able to get through this tempo run. 
 
We are up to 30 minutes worth of tempo for tonight, which means that we will begin the tempo portion of the run at the 14th street bridge overpass, run all the way Hains Point clockwise, and gather back up at the corner of VA ave and Rock Creek Parkway. Like last week, people who finish first should make their way to Thompson's boathouse water hose and wait for the rest of us there. 
 
Oh, yeah, also.... How about tacos? If you want to get tacos let the rest of us know.
