This Saturday is the “Friends of the W&OD” 10K race in Vienna. It starts in the Town, just a few yards away from the red caboose, then proceeds down the W&OD trail until it hits Hunter Mill Road. Then you run the same course back.
The race starts at 6:30 pm and it’s tough. I won’t lie. I’ve run it in past years and it’s been hot as @#$! Drink a lot of water. Pace yourself for the first 2-3 miles. Pretend you’re running downhill.
Joe Abbey, campaign manager for Creigh Deeds, will be joining us. Joe and I ran a dozen road races together in 2007 when he was my manager. He was ruining my life so I wanted to put some pain in his.
After the finish (let’s say 7:45 pm or so), Joe and I will be at the Vienna Inn to enjoy a frosty cold one. Please join us. There should be signs, stickers and other campaign material. This is not a fundraiser and all are invited.
I look forward to seeing you Saturday.
