2019 Crystal City 5K Fridays April 5, 2019 - April 26, 2019

Crystal City 5k Fridays

I’m proud to announce that I dropped $65 and am now registered to run a 5k race every Friday evening for the Month of April. Since I tend to DFL, I intend to spend time between now and April 5th slow-running and slow-jogging my way into becoming a middle of the pack of a rear of the pack runner.  I’ve done these races before, back in 2016, and love them.

Every Friday in April at 6:30 PM, Arlington residents come together in their running kit and run 5k together for fun and glory. It’s called the Crystal City 5k Fridays. So, for four Fridays in April, for $65 for the series, you can have an easy weekly reason, excuse, and goal for getting your run in every day for the five or six previous days.
