9.11 Mem 5K, Arlington, 6 pm:
And there's beer and pizza after!
I'm interested in doing this! Do we want to put a DC Tri team together?
I will (almost) always say yes to a race if there is promise of food and beer
If we do a team I would be interested in doing it.
I'm signing up today. I'll put down DC Tri Club as a team and volunteer myself as the contact.
hhertler AT me DOT com
and I guess we're an open team (as I wouldnt call me a runner from a running club!)
Let me know if you're in and participating on team DCTC
Thanks, Hillary. I'm hoping to do the Bay Shore Century that day, then will probably do the water stop for this race with Potomac Runners. See you out there.
I'm doing Nations the next weekend (first olympic tri). Would this be a good training for that or would it be too much so close to the race?
nations will be my 2nd Oly. I don't see a problem with it. It's only a 5k, not a 10k or a Century ride (there's one that weekend as well). I'm organizing my training so that it's included in my overall workout (tapper) for the week. I'm not going all out either...just a fun run.
I dunno, if I'm in a race its hard for me to not *race*. High school cc instincts kick in as soon as the gun goes off.
If you're planning on running this event OR have registered I did sign up a DC Tri Team. So if you want to join the team there's that option.
I'll be there and sporting the DC Tri Tee from Cafe Press in a lovely pink color. I'm not fast but if you're looking to run with someone look out for me (I'm about a 8.5-9 min mile).
Hillary - see you Saturday!
