THIS WEEK AT =PR=

Jul

Wed
Training Smart & Fueling Properly @ =PR= Burke
Jul 27 @ 7:30 pm – 8:45 pm

We hope to have you join us for a very informative seminar given by coach and professional triathlete, Margie Shapiro. Margie will provide detail on the concepts behind your training, addressing smart training and fueling/hydration. The seminar will delve into the basic exercise physiology relevant to marathon training to explain why, especially as your long runs get longer, running at the appropriate effort level becomes increasingly important.

Additionally, Margie will discuss the importance of fueling and hydrating effectively. Marathon training is about more than putting in the miles and doing the workouts. Many people throw away months of training on race day because they do not refuel effectively during the race. Your body burns on average about 100 calories/mile – that means during the course of a marathon, you’re burning 2600 calories – just to keep yourself running. It’s therefore critical to learn to eat and drink correctly, both to make your training more effective and your race successful. This seminar will cover what to eat and drink, when, and why – before, during, and after training and the race itself.

Margie will be conducting this seminar on 3 different dates, in 3 different PR store locations.

If you’d like to join us for the RESTON seminar, please RSVP below.

Game On =PR= DC @ =PR= DC
Jul 29 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Come meet the On Tour bus at Potomac River Running Store’s downtown DC location on Friday July 29! At this healthy happy hour event, On’s Directors of Fun have teamed up with the DC staff to kick the weekend off with a fun relay race. Grab a teammate or two and get to the store around 6 to try on a pair of On running shoes, and sign up for the relay, which will start at 6:30. Here’s how it
works: each team member will turn in an estimate of how long it will take them to complete the course, and the team with actual finish times closest to their estimated times will win! On will have prize packs for the winning team, plus an MVP award to hand out, too. After the run, stick around to enjoy beers and snacks, courtesy of On, and get to know some new running friends in your community. It’s Friday — get your game On!
