We Run DC

On Sunday morning, a whole lot of runners will fill the streets of DC for the Inaugural Nike Women’s Half Marathon. To be honest, I never expected to get in to this race, especially the first one. I changed my train to get out here this morning instead of tonight, picked up my bib, utilized a Nike gift card or two to pick up some swag and splurged on a pair of shoes. If you’re heading to the expo tomorrow, here’s some good info:

  1. Shake out run with Joan Samuelson Saturday 4/27 at Nike Georgetown, 8 AM
  2. Expo: At Washington Harbor in Georgetown from 8-6 PM.  Have your confirmation e-mail either on your phone or printed out.  Get it scanned and you’re good to go! If you’re a college student, be sure to bring your student ID and driver’s license, just to be safe. Also be sure to head outside the expo closest to the river: the have some good stuff out there as well.
  3. Getting some swag: You can head to Niketown (right down the street from the Expo), but also try City Sports in Georgetown or The Running Company which is a short walk down M street.  Less crowded and they have some NWM DC gear
  4. FYI, you get a finisher’s shirt on Sunday as you finish the race, so don’t panic when you don’t get one at packet pick up!

To Boston, With Love, Philadelphia

Tonight, about 3000 runners and 30 runners took to the streets of Philadelphia to support Boston and those affected by the bombings at the Boston Marathon on Monday.  Something that started out at about 10 locations in Philadelphia on Tuesday/Wednesday turned into 30 by this afternoon.  It was so large, that about 10 minutes before we took ourselves for a run down Market Street, the police blocked off Market Street for us.  Yes, we had that many runners running for Boston.  CBS and ABC were covering the impromptu meetup and Mayor Nutter gave a phone call.  As one of the people from Philadelphia Runner put it, “Let’s not let fear extinguish the running community in this city.  If you’re going to run at Broad Street, run at [the] Broad Street [run], if you’re going to cheer at Broad Street, cheer at Broad Street.  Don’t let the fear stop us from running or stop us from cheering or from training.  Don’t let it stop us from PRing!”  The best way to tell you of tonight’s meet up is to show you:

NYC Poland Springs Run Type of Weekend

Oh (hurricane) Sandy, why would you try and threaten my birthday weekend?? Yesterday, I decided I wanted to come out to NYC for the Poland Spring 5 Mile Run by NYRR. $32 round trip on megabits and a cheap hotel later, hear I am. I was able to still sign up at NYRR (woot!) and pay all of $23 due to my NYRR membership. Hopefully, Sandy will be nice and the Parks System won’t pull a quick one and cancel the race tomorrow AM. NYC Marathoners, I’m warming up your last few miles for you! Enjoy some race swag while you enjoy your Saturday afternoon college football 🙂
