If any of you, my dear drumming sistas and brothas, have never drummed at a race I guarantee it's an experience you won't soon forget. The energy exchanged between drummers and runners is fantastic. Drumming keeps their pace alive and you'll often see runners and walkers two stepping to the beat energizing the beat and getting us all fired up, some will stop by and thank you and may even stick around to shake their ass a bit.
So come on out and jam it up for this race with us. A noble human cause as well as this event is raising funds for Northern Virginia Family Services. There will be vendors for treats and food after the race.
I am planning to start meeting around 8:15 or so around the parking lot of Coastal Flats in Fairfax Corner. The race isn't scheduled to start until 9 but we'll have to walk about a block or two to our designated spot southeast on Monument Drive to a grassy area around Monument Hill Way. If it's too far a walk with drums I'll pack them all in my car and drive them to the spot. It's important to be as efficient setting up our line as this is only a 5k and will only run for a little over an hour to get through all racers.
Very well my friends, I hope to see you all at this gig. Be well and Peace,,..
