SLR November 9 - RFK

Hello Saturday Runners!

This week's route, on November 9, will be 12 miles to RFK Stadium and back (downloads: cue sheet and GPS). Since this route is essentially an out & back, if you'd like to shorten the run you can simply turn around sooner, before you get to RFK and head back to the SLR meeting point. To extend the run you have any number of options from the downtown DC area, but one option is to add 4 miles by tacking on Hains Point. To do this, take a left just before the Washington Monument on your way back and head down past the Tidal Basin and left onto Ohio Drive, and then after rounding the point and heading North along the river, rejoin the planned route at the Lincoln Memorial where you can cross the bridge back to VA. I'm out of town again this week, but Megan will be there in my place to get things going on Saturday morning.

Thank you Eiko Sato for our post-run drinks this week! 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.

Coming up in a few weeks, DCRR and the Del Rey Business Association will be holding the annual Alexandria Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning, November 28, at 9:00 am. This five mile race is one of our club's biggest events of the year, so start your turkey early on Thanksgiving morning and then head over to George Washington Middle School in Del Rey to either run or volunteer. As the region's premier Turkey Trot, the totally flat course will be equally friendly to speedy competitors, strollers, families, dogs, and costumes! For more info and registration, please go to alexandriaturkeytrot.com.

Happy running,

Mike
