SLR August 10 - Piney Branch

Hello Saturday Runners!

This week's route is the 12 mile Piney Branch loop (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). If you're at a point in your marathon training cycle where you're looking for a longer run, there's an easy modification that will make this 16 miles instead - follow the beginning of this route, and then continue on up 16th St all the way to Joyce Rd on the left, which will lead down to Rock Creek Park where you can take either Beach Drive or Ross Drive back onto the mapped route. We should have a relatively nice morning tomorrow, with dew point in the 50s, and temperature in the upper 60s!

Thanks you Emily and Kenneth Riley for post-run drinks, and Kam Yee for mid-run drinks! Mid-run drinks will be located on Piney Branch Parkway, on the right side of the road as you're heading down into Rock Creek Park (about mile 6). Our next volunteer need will be for mid-run drinks on September 7, so please let me know if you can help with this or anything else. 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.

In other news, we have a new club apparel store, which is now up and running! For members who are on DCRRC race teams, you will still be provided with a free navy blue singlet as in the past, but you can now order a number of other additional items if you'd like.

Happy running,
