SLR October 12 - TIME CHANGE - MBT Catholic

Hello Saturday Runners!

DON'T FORGET: Starting this Saturday, on October 12, the SLR meeting time will be shifting 1 hour later to 8:00 am, so move back your alarms and enjoy the extra hour of sleep at the start of your weekend.

This week's route on Saturday, October 12, will be the 14 mile loop MBT Catholic (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). If you aren't in Vienna or Chicago this weekend for either of their super-fast marathons, SLR will be the place to be! We have a beautiful running day forecast with temps in the low 50s, and partly cloudy skies. For those of you targeting MCM this is the start of your taper, and for those of you racing as early as this weekend, good luck! If you'd like to extend this week's route beyond 14 miles, a good place to do this is after running down onto the Rock Creek Park trail at about 11 miles where you can tack on any amount of distance by heading north first before heading back south to finish the loop. For shortening this week's route less than 14 miles, the easiest way to do so is to run out & back along the Mall, and up to Union Station and the MBT depending on how far you'd like to go.

Thank you Kyle Edgerton for post-run drinks, this week and over the past month! Please note that with the weather changing to cooler fall temps, and distances tapering off for upcoming marathons, we will not have volunteer staffed mid-run drinks for the rest of the year. If you'd like to make sure you have fluids during your long run, please make sure to carry your own - it's never a good idea to count on any given known water fountain being functional. 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
