Bundy field 5:30pm. I want to thank everyone that still comes out despite the cold, and limited time and field space. We’ve still been having lots of fun and staying active. It’s also a great for the mental health to have some midweek social activity.
Try to come early to boot up and warm up. We want to get started immediately at 5:30 since soccer takes over promptly at 7.
The weather should be just above freezing with no wind. Just right for those of us that have settled into the winter routine. We’ve been having some great fast paced play lately and I hope to see you all out there.
We’ll be back by the Smithsonian metro Saturday morning at 9:30am. Brace yourself for the cold. The realfeel is going to be about 18F/-9C. Much like last week, but with lighter wind. Still no precipitation.
It’s going to be above 40 degrees tonight, with a very light wind. Now is the time to get your run in before the temps plunge back into the low 20s.
Bundy field 5:30pm sharp. Please try to come as early as possible for warmup, changing boots etc, so that we can get started early or on time. There are soccer teams that start promptly at 7 which limits our playing time.
It seems like most people just aren’t thawed out from Saturday. Or the prospect of running on an inch of slushy snow in freezing temps with a strong, biting wind is just not appealing. Weird.
Conditions should be okay for Wednesday though. It will warm up to the mid 40s and with luck the chance of rain will keep diminishing.
9:30am, between Washington monument and WW2 memorial. If the west side of the mall or the tidal basin are open, we might move, but they’ve been closed off the last few weeks.
Temps will be below freezing, about 16F/-9C. Prepare yourself mentally and physically for the cold. Good news is there is no ice.
Hooray! I think the temp will crack 40…positively tropical. We’ve been having some great runs on the turf field. So come on out if you need an excuse to stretch the legs mid-week after a long day of work
Temp: Cold*. Wind: Light. Rain: None. *frosty, freezing, arctic, frigid, glacial…..
Quick note about the delayed weekday posts. With the colder evenings we don’t want to risk having only five or six people show up, so it’s trying gauge interest before making it official. It seems like we have been pretty successful with the field space at Bundy and there has been consistent interest in Monday and Wednesday. So if you’re trying to plan your week, it’s likely that we will play, but the official post will still probably come out the same day for weekdays.
But we aren’t going to let a small threat of frostbite stop us. We’re on for Saturday morning. The west side of the Washington monument, between WW2 memorial and Washington monument. 9:30am
The realfeel index shows about 19F (-7C), but plenty of sunshine. Also there will still be some snow on the ground since temps haven’t gotten high enough to melt any of last night’s snow.
Bundle up, mentally prepare, and let’s have some fun.
We’ll play tonight and it will be a relatively warm 43 degrees. But I can’t guarantee all the snow will be melted yet.
