SLR November 10 - Four Mile Run Park

Hello Saturday Runners!

Tomorrow's route is Four Mile Run Park (downloads: cue sheet and GPS), for 11.5 miles. If you'd like to go shorter than this, I'd recommend out & back on the Mt Vernon Trail, as the turnoff will be at about 5 miles out. For about one extra mile you can continue past Roosevelt Island on your way back and return via Rosslyn, and for more than that go up and down the Custis Trail (or hop over the Key Bridge, etc.) before returning to the start. You should have a nice cool sunny fall morning in store tomorrow that's looking like a great day for a long run!

Thank you Christine and Paul Westcott for providing post-run drinks, and thanks to Rich Mendelowitz for filling in for me this week! We are now in need of more volunteers for post-run drinks starting next week, so please let me know right away if you can help. Post-run drinks will not resume until we get another volunteer. The weekly schedule of volunteers, routes, and distances is always kept up-to-date on the SLR web page, and you can email me any time to book your slot. For general info on how volunteering works see the SLR FAQ or send me an email if you have any other specific questions.

The Alexandria Turkey Trot 5 Miler is coming up in only two weeks on Thanksgiving Day. If you are in town, it's a great way to start off the holiday morning on a neighborhood race course that's friendly to speedsters, strollers, turkey costumes, dogs, and everything in between! This race is one of our club's premier events of the year, and our single biggest source of revenue, so we would love to see you there either running or volunteering. Registration for both is at the link above.

Happy running,

Mike
