Public running tracks/sports fields

Good afternoon,

Have any of you seen a school track/football field in the DC area that has a tractor tire on the field? Random request, I know, but hoping to find a public track/field where there may be some heavier duty tires to pair some strength workouts with intervals so that I can get outdoors a bit more while the weather is nice. Any suggestions in the Washington DC area would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Spring Means Little League Baseball!

Spring is right around the corner. Which also means the start of baseball/softball season!

Are you interested in supporting youth baseball in Columbia Heights, Petworth, U Street or the Adams Morgan area? As a long-time coach and volunteer with Banneker City Little League serving these neighborhoods, I can tell you that sponsorship goes a long way towards making sure kids have uniforms and equipment and fields are maintained.

Sponsorship starts at $75 and goes up to $5,000 per season, with perks that include hanging a prominent company banner at Banneker Recreation Center on Georgia Avenue. For more information, you can contact me directly or learn more here.

Please feel free to forward this request to family, friends, and your employer. Each year we need at least 15 sponsors to keep providing youth baseball, so your help is greatly appreciated!

Great Trainer in Adams Morgan/Columbia Heights Area!

I have been working with Tia Andrawis for several months now and she has been great! I have lost 15 lbs and feel better then I ever have at 46 years young! She comes to my home in Adams Morgan with equipment and trains me 2 days a week early in the morning before I go to work. I would recommend her to anybody in the area. Here is the link to her profile page

What's your opinion of ClassPass?

I’m thinking about buying a ClassPass membership. Wondering if anyone has tried this service where you pay $99 a month for unlimited access to fitness classes ( It seems too good to be true. I’m aware of the 3 classes a month limit, but wonder if there any other hidden fees or limitations.

Capitol Hill/Columbia Heights Potential Outdoor Bootcamp?

I am a health and fitness professional looking to start some independent work outside of my full-time position. I wanted to ask the community if there would be any interest in an outdoor boot camp? I am thinking in Columbia Heights or Capitol Hill neighborhoods or both! If so, what days/times would people be interested in? What meeting places would participants enjoy? I am open to all input actually. Thank you!

Excellent MASSAGE therapist Found!!

As a former LMT – I have had a hard time finding a really good one in DC; but I have now.

I highly recommend Emily Brown at Freed Bodyworks – {it’s just past the burt Frager’s at about 13th/PA Ave SE.} I haven’t had a massage like this in years. I finally have mobility back in my shoulder. This isn’t a one-time fixes all massage – but a helluva lot of progress. I’m so happy.

A key for me is always someone who was NOT trained at PTMI, and this LMT was trained out West. Noticeable difference, superb technique.

Marine Corps Marathon Bib

I’m interested in acquiring a bib for the 2015 Marine Corps Marathon in October. I was unsuccessful in winning a bib during the lottery earlier this spring and am hoping to acquire one through the transfer process. If you have a bib that you are looking to transfer, let me know!

Baltimore Ravens Bars in DC?

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to find a good place to watch the Baltimore Ravens football games in DC. I’ve tried Mason Inn, but it’s just not that awesome of a bar and a pain to get to as well. I also tried The Pug, but they wouldn’t put the sound on, even though there were a fair number of Ravens fans there.

A number of other bars will play the game, but won’t commit to having the sound on, especially if the Washington team is playing at the same time. I’m curious if readers know of any places (other than Mason Inn) that consistently play the Ravens games with sound?


p.s. There is a Ravens Fans Meet Up group for the DC/NoVa area, but they seem to have settled on a bar outside of DC (in Arlington)

Running groups in Petworth??

I just move to Petworth and am hoping there is a run group that meets up nearby. Ideally looking for people that are interested in a couple shorter (3-4 miles) runs during the week and a longer run on the weekends. Please let me know if you know of such a group or if you live in the area and are interested in finding some running buddies. I am a 10-min miler.

Weekend/after work (non-professional) bike group

I am looking to see if anyone is interested in meeting up and forming a small group of riders who tries to meet (when available) after work or on weekends for bike rides in the 20-50 mile range @ a pace of 13-16 mph. I have done most of my riding solo this year, but have found I enjoy riding much better when it is with a group (doing the occasional weekend bike shop ride). I don’t ride all the time (maybe 1-2 times per week), but it is more fun riding in a group to have others pushing you and also so you can have a slip stream to ride longer.

I usually like to ride the NoVA trails (Mt. Vernon, Cutsis, W&OD) but am not opposed to CC and Rock Creek Park trails. I also don’t mind doing laps around Haines Point when I want to do something quick after work. If anyone is interested let me know.
