You know what time it is. It’s Operation Hot Summer Bod time. Or maybe its just, get fit/get in shape/do something outside time. Your goal matters not, Crystal City’s Green Scene is here to enable you with its 5K Fridays

For five consecutive weeks beginning tomorrow, run a race each Friday eve at 6:30 p.m. You can sign up for each at a price of $15 a pop or do the whole she-bang for $50. Race starts at 2121 Crystal Drive in Crystal City. ALSO there are post-race parties at the Tortoise & Hare Bar and Grill, and you get a free pasta dish at Noodles & Company (CC likes its ampersands…). GOOD DEAL.

Acacia has lived in DC since graduating from Vassar College with degrees in English and Italian. She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: or follow her on twitter.

  1. As someone who is looking forward to starting “Operation ogle hot summer bods” I approve of this message.

    Anyone else who wants to join OOHSB is welcome to join the meetings which take place over beer at the sidewalk cafe on Crystal Drive.
