Beat the Heat

Tonight is the area's hottest (literally) twilight 5K, the Crystal City Twilighter.  Sure, you expect some heat when you put on a race in the middle of summer but "heatpocolypse" in the "heat dome" is something well, we could have done without.

However, never to fear- Pacers and our friends at the Arlington County Fire Department are prepped for the evening temps with multiple water stops, sponges at halfway, over 1200 lbs of ice, water, water, and more water.  McDonald's is stopping by with frozen strawberry lemonade (yum) and our friends at Muscle Milk and VitaCoco will also be onsite to pass out some goodies. And yes, cold beer.

Remember to hydrate today and come prepped to have a good time at tonight's race!
