SLR May 25 - Glover Soapstone Rock Creek

Hello Saturday Runners!

First I'd like to remind everyone that after Memorial Day, starting on June 1 (next week) our meeting time will move up to 7:00 am. This will get us out there earlier and help stave off (if not beat) the heat during the summer months. Meeting time will shift back to 8:00 am in the fall, probably early October.

This Saturday, on May 24, the route will be Glover - Soapstone - Rock Creek (downloads: cue sheet and GPS) for 14 miles. You can cut off about a mile by returning over the Key Bridge instead of Memorial Bridge, or to cut an additoinal mile, take a right rather than a left on Connecticut, and return thru the Zoo instead of the Soapstone trail. For 10 miles or less, you can run out & back on the Glover - Archbold trail. Also, assuming that construction at the Glover - Archbold trail entrance is still ongoing, instead of the usual entry continue up Foxhall Rd NW, take a right on 44th St NW, and a right on P St NW which will end at an entry trail into Glover - Archbold Park.

You should have a nice sunny day for a run this week on Saturday, with temps in the mid 60s! I'm going to be out of town, but Andrew will introduce and start the run for you.

Big thanks to Charlotte and Mark Hyatt for extending thier volunteer block to cover this week's post-run drinks! We no longer have any SLR beverage volunteers on the schedule after this week so please get in touch with me ASAP if you can help. In addition, starting next week mid-run drinks are planned to begin again for the summer, but this won't happen until we get volunteers! 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.

Happy running,

Mike
