Hello runners! Please note that James Wilson and Lindsay Marsh will be leading the run this week, so if you have any questions please contact them instead of me. We'll be doing the Northern loop of the Anacostia River Trail this week. Remember that this route does cross train tracks past mile 3.5.
Run Route Schedule:
3/02 - Anacostia Trail Northern Loop (6.0 miles) (MAP: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/170015126)
3/09 - Anacostia Trail Southern Loop (6.3 miles) (MAP: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/167332484)
3/16 - *Cancelled* (The Rock & Roll Half/Full Marathon is taking over DC that day)
3/23 - Tidal Basin with Cherry Blossoms, hopefully! (7.0 miles) (MAP: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/173904666)
3/30 - National Arboretum (Route TBD - possibly carpool up and do park loops)
Note - these trails don't have water fountains for the most part, so if you like to hydrate during a run you will want to bring your own. I find that in this winterish weather, I don't need to hydrate if I'm running for around an hour, but everyone has their own preferences. And for those of you looking for hill workouts, there may be a new addition in the spring that tackles the Penn Ave hill in Anacostia... :)
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or want to figure out another distance option, I will be happy to help :)
I hope to see you Saturday!
