Fast Times in DC

Several of our members turned out for the Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run.  We are truly fortunate to have an event nearby that draws immense local, national, and international talent for us to compete against.  An incident on the course before the start of the race caused the course to be shortened to 9.39 miles, but the Striders came through with some huge performances despite the last minute change.  Many members almost certainly would have run PRs had the course been regulation length.

We also fielded a mixed Master's Team which took 5th (but sadly with no picture).

Great job to everyone who ran!  Here are the overall performances from the day at CB:

March Performances

March proved to be a month of many excellent running performances for the racing team.  Notably, a new Racing Team record set for the 5k (Julia - 17:12), and several of our runners set big PRs (Julia, Jess, Tammy, and Mark).  Keep up the good work everyone!
