SLR - March 19 - Up to 20 miles

Hi Runners,

Good luck to those of you running the Shamrock Marathon and Half Marathon! I know we have a big crew and I really wish I had signed up for the half just to be there!

The weather this Saturday is looking much better than last week where we got hailed on! The run this weekend is an out and back on the C&O Canal. The GPS and cue sheet are here. This weekend, you can run out as far or as little as you chose. The suggested route for April marathoners is 20 miles, but personally I will be going shorter. Fun fact, the C&O canal goes from DC to Cumberland, MD which is 184.5 miles!

There are no volunteers for post run drinks this week so there will be no drinks! Please bring water with you. The drinks are reimbursed by the club through this link.

I would like to start doing shoutouts in these emails starting with the Shamrock marathon/half marathon! So if you or one of your running friends runs a race and deserves a shoutout, please send me an email by Wednesday afternoon and I will include it in the next email!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
