Come celebrate the almost start of taper, the start of more work, or achievements already achieved! Where? At the last run2HH for the year.
Start: Monday Recovery Week Social/Short Runs: PRR Arlington @ 6:30 PM
Bring your ID, $, and join us for a point to point group run ending at a happy hour. The run is about 1.5 miles from the start – so most have planned to walk back as a group, or share an uber ride or cab.
Or, meet us at Westover Market and beer garden around 7pm, if you just want the HH.
You’ll find us upstairs – There is a parking garage half a block away

What is this big training weekend all about? It is simply a tradition that has built over the last decade for which the purpose is to make a very big deal about the coming/nearing end of the hard summer training season. This marks the end of a very level of training effort for all of us, at every level (No, this event is not for Ironman people – it is for our entire team). We are all coming to the end of our training plans and looking forward to taper and our big A race at the end of the season. Patriots, Nations, Savageman, Choo Choo, or Crabby Crabby…
We plan this weekend in order to CELEBRATE. And that celebration can include your family.
***NEW FOR THIS YEAR *** In the past mostly coaches doing the cooking with support of volunteers. I’m trying to change that for this year, and moving forward. I want to be out on the course, not burning hot dogs. I want to be meeting your family and your dog, and giving you a pat on the rear end when its needed and shake your hand at the finish line.
SO – we are considering “catering” for this round. We will still likely have the traditional Team Z barbecue on the Sunday Run, it’s a shorter and easier day for all of us (team z volunteers AND athletes). But for Saturday we are looking at having “Cajun Catering” run the show. We will still have some burgers, dogs, sides as options – BUT we are considering:
AND VOTE ON THE EVENT BRITE (FREE VOTES) TO HELP US DETERMINE INTEREST
Remember – please invite family and/or significant others to meet you near your anticipated finish time to join us for the socials. Children eat for free.
Please understand that for years we’ve been doing this on mostly our backs and our volunteers – no labor costs. That would change with this. Yes, volunteers are still welcome to help out on event day. But please realize how much time goes into the “before the burger hits your plate” moment. The big stuff – shopping, packing in coolers, lifting said coolers, hauling, unpacking, set up, cooking, cleaning, packing, hauling, unpacking ….. management would be now on a professional (Team Zr though). At $15/person – anything over cost will be donated to the MS Society. There will also be a bucket to donate a few extra $$ if you wish.
Before we get to this week’s In This Email overview, check out the polls for this weekend and next weekend. These are important for helping us plan … if you’re not sure whether you’ll be participating, it’s better to vote and not come than it is to not vote and then come. So, go vote!
