WUSA9 Caption Contest Winner, Charlene Woods "Those guys look a lot bigger from down here."

Congratulations to the winner of our Facebook Photo Caption Contest, Charlene Woods. Did you watch the Super Bowl?

This photo (provided by US Presswire) is of NY Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw running for a touchdown with :57 left on the clock.

The theory is that the New England Patriot allowed the Giants to score the touchdown, so they could get the ball back with one timeout and enough time to make a final drive. The Giants ended up winning Super Bowl XLVI 21-17.

Volunteer, Bike, Run, and Celebrate this Labor Day Weekend on the W&OD Trail

From the Dominion Trail Mix:


The Great Skedaddle is a term used to describe the disorganized retreat of Union troops back to Washington after their unexpected defeat at the first Battle of Bull Run on July 21, 1861. We will commemorate this historic retreat along the Washington and Old Dominion Trail with a running, walking and biking event along the paved W&OD Trail. History will be a part of this event with themed elements from the Battle of Bull Run, and the Trail itself, to celebrate the deep rooted history of this resource. 

The event is non-competitive and untimed. Use it as a training day for an upcoming race, or simply come out to enjoy the trail with friends and family!
