  1. Look Ahead for events that happen early next week

We are officially in the twilight zone ”“ the next two-three weeks are our transition from our winter season into the spring.   Please note the HUGE changes for the next few weeks as our staff (and athletes) get a break.

  • NO MONDAY ”“ THURSDAY YOGA OR BOOT CAMP OR GROUP RIDES NEXT WEEK.   You have some workouts on your schedules ”“ but they are largely super easy.
  • Yoga is on Friday AM at Simon Says
  • The only Group Run for Next week is a Wed Run from the Arlington PRR.   I wanted this to be for everyone from West, DC, Maryland, and Va.   The start time is moved back a hair to 6:45 PM ”“ and I was hoping we could get a nice sized crew to head out for a run and then a post run Happy Hour/Dinner at The Green Turtle.
  • Wed Post Run Green Turtle Happy Hour/Dinner ”“ immediately after the run, 7:15 ish since the runs are so short.
  • Swims are on as normal on Tuesday and Thursday
  • Yoga is on Friday AM at Simon Says

Note ”“ Please read the instructions on the “secret parking area” for the Wed Arlington PRR Run.


  1. DC Rock and Roll Marathon and Half Marathon!

Coach Alexis is finishing up our “support station plan” and I’m pumped to hear so many people planning to come out.   Bring a cooler and snack ”“ be ready for weather and look for the details from Alexis on where to meet.


  1. Sunday Group Ride at Marshall Park and Ride 9:00 AM


  • Saturday Group Ride ”“ DO NOT FOLLOW THE ADDRESS WE GIVE YOU FOR THE GPS TO A “T”.   After you exit from rte 50 ”“ take an immediate left following the sign to “Davidsonville Park and Ride”.   If you don’t see us ”“ in like 3 minutes than you missed the turn and you should head back towards rte 50 and we will be on the right.
  • Ride Leaders:   Mark, Mary, Dave, Elizabeth, Kerrie, Dianne, Maureen, Chris

Where:  Davidsonville Park and Ride Parking Lot


  • 9 am start for everyone  Ride Max is FOUR hours.   NO exceptions. Pick a route you know you can finish in 4 hours conservatively ”“ if you have extra time you can do an out and back.
