Run with an Olympian

Whether you’re gearing up (and tapering down) for Sunday’s Marine Corps Marathon or see another race in your future, you can learn from the best tomorrow night.

Come to Pacers Logan Circle at 7 p.m. to join marathon runner Ryan Hall, who broke a record in the 2008 Olympic trials and finished 10th in the Beijing Olympics, and his wife Sara Hall, also an elite runner, for a quick zip around town.

Buy a Run.Give.Run. package, and you’ll get a pair of running shoes that Ryan will sign, plus a race entry. And a member of DC nonprofit Back On My Feet, which promotes self-sufficiency of homeless populations by engaging them in running, will get a donated pair of running shoes.

No word on how far or fast you’ll have to run – better eat your Wheaties.
