Lots of alternatives this Sunday, but anyone else doing this race?

Running just the 5K. Haven't heard if other tri members are racing as well. The registration is closed though, so if you didn't sign-up already, you'll just have to run along the path I guess! Still not a bad option considering the nice weather this weekend.

Yes, I'm doing the 5K too, then reverse-walking course to watch leaders and head to Potomac Runners water stop in Old Town. Will have PR hat on.

Like the du, a hot race.

The heat was compounded by apparent low water pressure, which reduced the flow of water hoses to some of the water tables early in the course. Which meant some water tables ran out of water. It looked like a flood at mile 8, by the time the slower runners came by, the road awash with spilled cups and hose water.

Love this race every year - have been doing it for must be 15 years or so. Wow - has it gotten big! Hot day and ran no where near a PR - but still love it!
