    Link: Hasting Market Place

    Hey you DC, MD, and NOVA BFRs, let's get together for a run along the Prince William Parkway. The weather is supposed to be nice Saturday so let's take advantage. There's a bike path that runs about 8 miles along the parkway. How 'bout we run 2 or 3?

    We'll meet at Hastings Market Place around 2 and then set out. The pace will be relaxed and the distance will depend on how we're feeling.

    If your're game, we'll see you there.

    For those who couldn't make it out, we had a great run and weather was fantastic!

    We didin't carry anything to gauge time or distance - so we just ran until we started to tire then turned around. Distance and time ended up being 7.2mi @ 1:15. We both started out unshod and then went to VFFs when needed. JC reached 2.4 (this was his first unshod run btw) and I made 4.3.

    The running surface:

    Well, if we call smooth concrete or paint on the street 1, and weather-beaten eroding asphalt 10, this was about a 3. There were a few rougher patches and some grit along the route but nothing we couldn't handle.

    I anxious to get out and do it again.
