Walk/Run/Jog at the National Arboretum

From one of our members...

"There's nothing posted for Sunday so...I'd like to suggest a 5-7 mile jog/walk/stop-to-read outing at the National Arboretum. Hopefully we leave with some calories burned and some lessons learned about the flora in the park.

I stole the idea from this blog: http://www.blogbyben.com/2014/02/running-us-national-arboretum-all.html "

Bring some water and trail mix. I'm up in New York this weekend, but I might be home Saturday night. If so, I'll come along for this too. Should be fun, relaxing, and educational!

    I'm getting home late tonight and didn't sleep much last night, so I won't be up in time for this run. Let me know how it goes, and I'll be sure to schedule it again another day.

    The Arnoretum gate is actually at the corner of R Street and Bladensburg Rd about 1/2 mile from the junction of New York Ave (Rte 50) and Bladensburg Rd. I will try and park close to teh gate on the left, I drive a light bronze VW Jetta with Tennessee plates.

    There needs to be a 'maybe' button! I am doing a long run early Saturday and have some late night social activities that night, so I don't want to commit and then not be able to sleep in if I need to (which I haven't done since June). But I really like this idea - the Arboretum is one place that I keep saying I need to check out, and then never do - so I would definitely be up for this, if not this Sunday then on another weekend! There are a number of well-regarded (though not the healthiest) food options in the area too, including BBQ and apparently authentic Chinese.
