Some folks at the Regional HH were interested in the NTPer Rat Park Run. Anyone in the Adams Morgan/Mt Pleasant/Columbia Heights area is welcome to join us. So far we meet Wednesdays at 6:30pm and a morning run day is tbd. Give a shout if you'll be there.
Next Run: Wednesday May 13th at 6:30pm

I'd be interested in joining you, I live by Logan Circle so not far... Where exactly do you meet?
Quite literally at Rat Park--no idea if it has an official name. It's the little triangular park in the middle of the intersection of 16th, Harvard, Mt Pleasant and Columbia road. Don't worry about the rats, they usually lay low until after dark : )
Count me in...I will be there on Wed the 13th at 6:30. It looks like the weather should cooperate! Anne Marie
Thanks for the info. I can't make it tomorrow but will be there next week! -Cristina
Hey Ratters--Sorry that I was offline and unavailable last week. Let's try again today Wed 27th at 6:30pm. There's a chance of rain but plan to go unless there's a downpour or lightening. If it looks doubtful, call/text me 703-304-0679.
MORNING RUN--We need to pick a regular day/time for a morning run. How about 6:30AM Monday, Thursday or Friday???
What kind of pace do you all run at? I'm on the slow side:-)
I'd love to meet up for morning runs on any other day then Monday's. Please keep me posted.
Nopher--Don't worry, we're not fast.
TODAY--I still plan to run tonight. Call/text me by 6pm if you'll be coming (esp if the weather looks iffy).
FRIDAY AM--Anyone want to go for a run this Friday the 29th at 6:30am??
I am up for a Friday morning run. Anne Marie
The Rat Park Run has to live up to its growing reputation by getting a bigger crowd out on the trail. Here are few decisions/mildly dictatorial suggestions for this week:
WEDNESDAY 6:30PM--The NW neighborhood HH is nearby at CommonWealth (next to Columbia Heights Metro). How about running and then rehydrating with some beer? I don't think Tri folks will mind if we're sweaty.
FRIDAY 6:30AM--Anne Marie and I went on the first morning run last week. Get up and get out to join us this week.
As always, if the weather is doubtful or you just want to double check that folks are coming, call/text me at 703-304-0679. I might not see a last minute email or post, but I'll have my phone until 6:15 when I head out for Rat Park. We meet near the water fountain in the park--by the corner of Harvard/Argonne.
See you and the rats soon!--Martha
I wish I could make it on Wednesday, but I can't...have a cold one on me!~ Anne Marie
I am very interested in meeting up for the 6:30 run tomorrow evening, but am curious as to what distance you are planning to run and what sort of pace is kept.
I don't know the exact distances we've covered. We've been running anywhere between 35-55 minutes and roughly 10 min miles--I think. It really depends on who shows up and what they feel like doing. Rock Creek park is the default route.
I have a meeting tomorrow at 7 p.m. but I plan to join you all next week. I live in Columbia Heights. I assume you guys are doing these runs every week.
Let me know if that is the case.
Yes, the plan is to run every week. Wed 6:30pm and Fri 6:30am are the times until/if folks suggest something else. Stay tuned to this thread for updates.--m
The run is on for tonight at 6:30 rain or shine. I ran in the rain last week and it wasn't so bad. Of course, you may want to wear a pair of old shoes.--Martha
Okay, I confess that I got hoodwinked by the dire weather reports and wimped out last week. Unfortunately I have to skip this Wednesday too. But don't let that stop you all from running.
I'd be up for a 6:30AM run this Friday. Let me know if you'd like to join me.--Martha
If you are running on Friday let me know. I'd be up for it. Just let me know where at 16th and Harvard you meet up.
I am up for a 6:30am run on Friday as well...Anne Marie (firstname.lastname@example.org)
