Arlington and DC trails. C&O Canal is my favorite trail for the long marathon training runs -- easy on the joints and absolutely beautiful once you get further from DC!
Since 2008, though I was mostly on a break during the 2 years in the Philippines. The group keeps me consistent while I'm in DC! Since I started running, I've run two marathons and 5 half-marathons. I missed running with the group -- some of my favorite people in DC!
Back when I was marathon training, shorter runs would average about a 10 min/mile, longer ones at a 11:30 min/mile. Now I'm (even more super) slow... Running in Manila was not easy...
I created the group back in 2008, was gone for two years while we lived in the Philippines, now I'm back in DC! Excited to get back to my favorite running trails!
The group members are wonderful! Great friendly crowd!
