SLR February 2 - Cathedral - Clintons

Hello Saturday Runners!

This week's route, on Saturday February 2, is 13 miles on the Cathedral - Clintons loop (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). If you return via the Key Bridge rather than Memorial Bridge it will cut about 1 mile from the route, and to cut 2 miles, you can do this on both ends of the run both heading out and heading back. I've been out of town this past week, but I understand you guys have had some cold weather... it's warming up next week starting on Saturday with an afternoon high in the 40s, but expect it to be in the 20s during tomorrow morning's run.

Coach Jonny will again be filling in for me this week, but I'm hoping and expecting to be joining you all next week! (though it would be a Saturday Short Run for me) Thank you Kaitlin Slaven for post-run drinks this week and next week! We currently do not have any more volunteers scheduled for post-run drinks after next week, so please let me know if you can help. 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.

If you're looking for a bit of mid-winter motivation, the club's annual George Washington's Birthday Marathon is coming up soon on February 17! The race includes options for a full marathon, as well as a three-runner relay, and registration includes free digital race photos, great food and finisher medals once you cross the finish line, and over $1500 in awards money to be distributed. The course includes 13 aid stations roughly every 2 miles, and is a USATF certified Boston qualifier. Even if you're not racing, we'd love to see you there as a volunteer, which you also register for via the race website linked above.

Happy running,

Mike
