SLR February 23 - Ross Drive

Hello Saturday Runners!

Our route this week is Ross Drive (download: cue sheet and GPS) for 14.5 miles. If you'd like to go for additional distance, each loop of Beach Drive and Ross Drive is about 3.5 miles, so you can make it an 18 mile run by adding a second loop. For a shorter run, I'd suggest going out & back on the Rock Creek Park trail, turning around whenever you reach half of your desired distance.

Thank you Jill Brasky for providing our post-run drinks this week! We will need another volunteer after next week to cover 3/9 and 3/16, so please let me know if you're planning to be at SLR for these two weeks and would be willing to 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.

The club's annual banquet and membership meeting is coming up soon on Sunday, March 3, at Maggiano's in Friendship Heights. Families are welcome, and there will be plenty of food included with cash bar available. The program will include presentation of annual awards, election of the following year's board of directors, a state of the club presentation, plus guest speaker Dr. Mark Cucuzzella, one of the world's leading running doctors and creator of the Air Force Efficient Running Program. Please register in advance if you plan to attend.

Happy running,

Mike
