SLR October 19 - Chain Bridge Loop

Hello Saturday Runners!

One more reminder: The SLR meeting time is now 1 hour later than it was over the summer, currently 8:00 am, so don't forget about the shift and accidentally show up an hour early.

Our route this Saturday, one week out from Marine Corps, is the 10 mile Chain Bridge Loop (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). If you're building up to a race later on in the fall and you aren't tapering yet, you can lengthen this route by instead running the Marymount Chain Bridge variant for 14 miles, or if you'd like 16 miles you can run that route and then keep going down on the DC side and cross the 14th St Bridge to return. It's finally starting to feel like fall and will probably get down to about 40 deg on Saturday morning, so grab your gloves on the way out and enjoy a cool and sunny long run!

Thank you Eiko Sato for our post-run drinks this week! 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, until next summer. If you'd like to make sure you have fluids during your long run, 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
