I got down to Falls Church about an hour or so before practice started. My CUCB training plan called for 5 miles today, so I thought I’d do a few before running with everyone else. I took the W&OD Trail down towards Tri360 and even saw Blaine and the Saturday morning ride coming down the opposite direction.
After a fundraising clinic at Road Runner Sports, we set out on the opposite direction of the W&OD Trail. For the first mile or so, I ran a little bit ahead of most of the group. And then, I decided I should do a better job at being a mentor so ran/walked with a few of the team participants. On the way back, I ran with one of the store associates that came out with us, as most of the team had already headed back.
Team Challenge DC/VA Half Marathon and Triathlon teams heading to the trail.
Back at the store, some of the team got fitted for new shoes. I browsed the clearance rack and picked up a shirt and a pair of socks. Road Runner Sports gave 10% off for all purchases made by Team Challenge DC/VA today. If anyone’s still interested in going to Road Runner Sports in Falls Church, mention Team Challenge and they should still be giving the 10% discount. They’re also giving a portion of the profits back to Team Challenge!
