How did you find or learn about the running group?

I found out about the DC Capital Striders through Meetup

Where in the area do you typically run? Please provide zip code.

I live on capitol hill, so most of my runs end up being along the mall, or waterfront.

Would you be interested in helping us volunteer at local races? Please email volunteer(at)dccapitalstriders(dot)com and we will tell you where we are volunteering.

Training for anything in particular or just maintaining overall fitness?

At the moment I am just trying to stay in some semblance of the shape I was in as a collegiate athlete, but without the oversight of a coach and encouragement/support of teammates I feel my motivation is starting to lag. I want to run a half marathon. My logic being that if I commit to training for something that I am currently incapable of doing, I will regain a sense of motivation and focus.


My name is Allison. I moved to DC this summer. I was a pole vaulter in college, and now, since that ended when I graduated, I am trying to be a runner. I am very tired of solo runs.
