Congratulations and Good Luck, October Runners

It has been a busy month for us at Coach Kiprunning.  For my part, I am reaching the end of a writing class that I have been teaching, and the grading has been piling up!  Beyond that, many of us are starting to think about spring marathons--I'm possibly looking at you, New Jersey Marathon--so the inevitable preparations for serious training are underway.  Also, we're starting to brainstorm additions to the Coach Kiprunning website, and that work is always really time-consuming.

The end result of all of this is that we've been a little quiet up here and therefore did not get a chance to offer formal congratulations to all of you who competed in some of the fall's premier racing events, like the Chicago Marathon, the B.A.A. Half Marathon, and the Army Ten Miler.  Congratulations to all of you.

Likewise, we wish all of the competitors in this year's Marine Corps Marathon (and 10K) and the upcoming New York Marathon the best of luck.  Run well, and enjoy the experience.  Fall races are the best.

Last, on a somewhat sad note, we will miss you Harriette Thompson.

Fall 2017 Kiprunning Sports Club Saturday Long Run Update

Fall is here, and with cooler temperatures and beautiful foliage also comes darker morning hours.  As a result, we will roll forward the start time for the Kiprunning Sports Club Saturday long run.

Starting on Saturday, October 7, 2017, we will begin our long runs at 7:00 am. As usual, we will meet at Georgetown Running Company, which is located at 3401 M St. NW, Washington, DC 20007. 

If you have questions about joining the Sports Club, please contact me.

Run steady, and enjoy the extra sleep!

Coach Wilson
