Things To Do This Weekend: Apr 20th and 21th

After a fairly warm week, the NOAA is predicting that temperatures will drop on Saturday and Sunday. At the time of this post Saturday was expected to be mostly sunny with a high of 64, while Sunday was expected to be mostly sunny with a high of 61.

Here are some ideas...

1. Run For Boston
To show solidarity with Boston following this week's tragedy, a number group runs are being organized throughout the city.

DC Capital Striders (Saturday)
The DC Capital Striders running club "has 3 Saturday morning runs open for all paces and 3-12 mile distances as the running community rallies for the Boston Marathon victims."
For more details, visit the DC Capital Striders Meetup page.

DC Runs for Boston (Saturday)
The group run starts at 8 A.M. in front of Union Station. Participants can choose a 5K or 10K. More details on the DC Runs For Boston Facebook page.

Marathon Monday Memorial Trail Run Powered by Saucony (Sunday)
Potomac River Running is organizing a run for Sunday morning at 8 A.M. in Burke Lake Park. Visit the Potomac River Running website for details and to RSVP.

2. FREE Boot Camps at City Sports (Saturday and Sunday)
In conjunction with Bounce Fitness, City Sports will hold FREE boot camps at its Georgetown (Saturday 10 A.M.) and Bethesda (Sunday 10 A.M.) locations. Visit the City Sports website to RSVP.

3. Namaste Day at Studio DC (Saturday)
Studio DC will offer free classes Saturday at its Adams Morgan and DuPont Circle locations. Check out our Studio DC Namaste Day post for more details.

4. Yoga Workshops Galore (Saturday and Sunday)
Follow the links for more details...

Saturday at Capitol Hill Yoga: Turn On, Tune In, Bliss Out: A Restorative Yoga Workshop with Tara Lemerise
Sunday at Flow Yoga: Yoga To Ease Neck & Shoulder Tension with Megan Davis
Sunday at Down Dog Bethesda: Holy Happy Hips with Shannon Garvey

5. Play some golf
It should be a nice weekend to get in a round (or more). Check our Active Life DC golf page for some suggestions.

If you don't find anything you like, you may want to give Renditions of Davidsonville, MD a try. We have NOT played the course, but the concept is interesting.

Renditions attempts to reproduce some of the world's most famous golf holes. Visit the Renditions website for tee times, and check out the following video to get introduced to the course.



6. Go for a hike
This week we posted an article about the U Street Heritage Trail. U Street has a very interesting history, from being the longtime center of the city's jazz scene to its place in the Civil Rights movement.

Walk the U Street Heritage Trail in the late afternoon and finish up your day with dinner in the neighborhood recently named DC's best for nightlife by the readers of the Washington City Paper.

If you want something more serene, check out the Lee's Woods Trail at Leesylvania State Park or one these other Washington D.C area hikes.
