To kick-off run month we will have a special run event in Rock Creek Park inspired by the super fun Sunday RCP Runs.
First Annual DC Tri Club Takes Over (bandit style) Rock Creek Park
Place: Trails of Rock Creek Park (or beach Drive for those trail adverse). Start and finish location: Pierce Mill.
Time: Start time variable so we all finish around 11ish am
• The Kip&Patrick: the 10 mile loop we all know and love so much. (http://connect.garmin.com/activity/62713118)
• The Reverse Kip&Patrick: well, the same as the Kip&Patrick but counter clockwise.
• The Weak Ankle: 10 miles (as an out an back) on Beach Drive
• The Jess Oldham: about 20 miles, the first 10 is the Kip&Patrick followed by the Weak Ankle. You get 10ish miles on the trail, and 10ish miles on solid payment.
• The Danny Hayes (AKA: Alejandro and Phil please shut-up, I’m in a dark place): One Kip&Patrick followed by a Reverse Kip&Patrick. 20ish miles total.
• The Mocha the Dog: easy stroll on the trails. Perfect to just chill and enjoy the park. No running involved. Chasing squirrels optional.
Just post here what you plan to do and start time so groups can form for those not familiar with the trails.
I'm interested in doing the Kip&Patrick at 9:30. Followed by brunch?
The Kip&Patrick @930 works for me as does brunch. Once we get a critical mass we can fig out a good spot. Feel free to shout out some suggestions here!
I'm up for the 9:30 Kip & Patrick run and brunch sounds great! I have around a 9 1/2 minute mile, though. Is that too slow for you guys? -Kaitlin
Kaitlin, of course not! Come out and run. See you on Feb 3!
I'm in for the K&P 10 mile! Brunch? Uhhhh....yes please!
~Paige (and new to the club)
Bump. Kick-off to NCC Run Month is this Sunday.
I plan to be there by 8:30AM and do The Jess Oldham (unless I oversleep again :(
I'm in for this Sunday the 3rd! Does it start at 9 or 9:30? Looking to do around 12-13 so I'll probably just add on at the end or something since I don't know where I'm going when on the trails.
We did brunch this past weekend at Matchbox post RCP run and it was great. We reserved a table for 12 ahead of time and could probably do that again for this weekend?
Adam - if we think this is an amenable spot, let's make a reservation. We might also want to get an EB event up so we can gage attendance for the RSVP.
in for chasing Kip & Patrick
I'll add some mileage at the end with you Courtney... Looking to do 16
Looks like a good turnout for the run this Sunday!
I reserved a spot @11am for us at Jake's American Grille which is a 5 minute drive from our run start/end at Pierce Mill.
It's on Connecticut just before Nebraska on the left.
As a bonus, some of us are going to go hit the ping pong tables accross the street at Comet afterwards so bring your paddle!
MoCo gang will be there! we are going 1hr out and back though...
Let's stick with the regular start time of 9:00 for this week. A couple of people mentioned 9:30 in this post but we'll never make it to brunch at 11:00 if we start after 9:00.
Does that work for everyone? It's going to be awesome having such a huge group out there.
Adam- how big of a space did we get? Is it going to be nuts with 20 some people trying to find seats and order food all at the same time?
In for the Kip&Patrick at 9... in for brunch!
Looking forward to it.
In for the Weak Ankle at 9am. Gosh, weak ankle sounds so...wimpy! I propose "Road Warrior" instead. I am thus in for the Road Warrior on Beach Drive at 9am :) Thanks for organizing!
See you guys at the Mill at 9. I'm probably in for the road warrior as well.
Hopefully for no bloody ankle, blisters or dog bites this week!
