Week of 4/9/12 - 4/15/12

Good morning, Rogue Racers!  Did everyone get a chance to read Evan's thank you note?  Evan participated in the Run Rogue 5K two weeks ago, and he was nice enough to write us a letter telling us about his experience in the race.  I'm sure you will all find his story inspiring!

We are going to switch up the track days this week since there isn't a track open on Wednesday night.  Tonight we will meet at Fairfax HS and Thursday night we will meet at Centreville HS.  Also, this Saturday is the raceDC Timing Test Race at the W&OD trail.  If you haven't registered yet, it is completely FREE, so please come out and run!  :-)

Workouts for this week:

  • Monday 4/9/12 - 6:30pm track workout at Fairfax HS
  • Tuesday 4/10/12 - n/a
  • Wednesday 4/11/12 - n/a
  • Thursday 4/12/12 - 6:30pm track workout at Centreville HS
  • Friday 4/13/12 (Tom's birthday) - n/a
  • Saturday 4/14/12 - 1:00pm 5K race at the W&OD trail in Vienna (course map)
    • Registration:
    • Please arrive early and try to park in the parking lot where the race will start/finish so that Erik can set-up the timing mats without having to worry about too many other people trying to get in and out of the parking lot
  • Sunday 4/15/12 - 9:00am run at the W&OD trail in Vienna

Happy training, 



  1. Does this portion of the trail fit a double stroller easily, or would it just be too much in the way?

  2. Hayley, it should fit no problem, I've seen plenty of strollers on the trail.

  3. Hayley, I second what Justin said. Nancy and John have actually pushed their double wide stroller on the trail tons of times during Saturday morning runs, so I know 100% that it will not be a problem! :-)

  4. Sounds good, cause I probably won't be able to make it unless I bring the crazies. Hopefully we can come! Thanks!

  5. Beautiful weather, see everyone out there this evening!

  6. Anyone going to the track tonight?

    We will not be able to make the Test Race on Saturday as we have Mackenzie's first soccer game at 1pm. Have fun all and I know this will turn up some really fast times!

  7. We should be there Nancy.... I think we are planning on 6 miles, and the track is definately softer than the streets. See ya there

  8. Mark and I will both be there

  9. Hey Peter! Nice videos of today's race.

  10. Thanks, the 3rd one should be ready in about an hour from this posting.

  11. i think I'm missing something, where are the videos?
