Lorem Ipsum Dolor Sit Amet. New Kiprunning Website Imminent.

We've been teasing Coach Kiprunning website updates for the better part of the summer.  I'm happy to say that we have reached the point where we can stop teasing and can start updating.

Over the next two weeks, Coach Kiprunning dot com will be undergoing a series of significant changes.  While the main navigation is likely to remain very much the same, all of the content will be updated to reflect Wilson Komen's current coaching practices.  Moreover, the Kiprunning Sports Club page will be revised to offer a current picture of how the club is functioning and, more importantly, how you can join it.

We will also be updating the various forms that new trainees complete when beginning their work with Wilson.

As we are making these updates, there is a chance that certain pages might be down temporarily.  If you have any questions, and cannot get answers to those questions on the Kiprunning website, please contact Wilson Komen by email at

You can also feel free to hit me up on Twitter @JosephPFisher1.

We're looking forward to launching the new site--and, of course, to running with you.

Monitoring National Capital Trail Development

The National Park Service has recently released their very comprehensive Paved Trail Study, which details the development of an interconnected, multi-use paved trail network in and around Washington, DC.  National Parks Traveler has published a great overview of the project, apparently called the National Capital Trail, complete with a map that tentatively outlines the trail system.

Clearly this work, if it proceeds, will be part of a very long process that will require coordination between different jurisdictions and government agencies.  Nevertheless, the prospects are interesting, and we'll definitely monitor how things proceed from here.
