    This is an almost loop around the golf course at Hain’s Point, twice. It isn’t a full circle. It’s out, back, and again. It’s 2.5 miles each time, so 10 miles total. If you don’t know Hain’s Point, it used to be where that Awakening sculpture was, a giant hand emerging from the ground, but they moved it, so now people refer to it as where that formerly was located. I am not that familiar with the area, but there also is a public golf course, which meant the pro shop was open early (with restrooms and soft drinks). There also is sufficient parking, including right at the start/finish. The course is flat. It offers waterfront views, including of Reagan National Airport. By DC standards, it’s picturesque.

    My time was back to the pack once again. That’s okay. It was the first race of the calendar year, and I improved 50 seconds over the last 10 miler, the last race of 2019, in St. Louis.

    I’d run this again. It was casual, small, and easygoing. But there were fast runners. My relative finish is usually higher than it was here, meaning there weren’t really walkers on the course. (The wintertime date might deter the less serious, but thanks to climate change it was a balmy 65 degrees or so, and I believe later that day was record setting.)
