Get set for the Historic Half

On Sunday, May 20 the Fredericksburg town crier will call for the starting musket to fire at 7 a.m. and thousands of runners will take to the streets for the fifth annual Marine Corps Historic Half.

The 13.1-mile loop begins and ends at the Fredericksburg Expo & Conference Center and weaves through the historic downtown Fredericksburg streets where George Washington grew up and the North and South fought one of the largest Civil War battles.

This year's race will also feature a few participants you may have seen on TV. The host of the hit show "The Biggest Loser", Alison Sweeney, as well as contestants Lauren Lee and mother Gail Lindsay Lee will take part in race day.

Sweeney, who will wear Bib 1, ran her first half marathon in January and completed her first marathon in March. She plans to finish with a time of 2:00 hours. Lee and her mother are both residents of Poolesville, MD. Lauren will be running her first half marathon while Gail plans to walk the Semper Fred 5K. Lauren is even registered to run the Marine Corps Marathon this fall.

Also participating in the event is Dr. Oz's Million Dollar Challenger Stephanie Lewis Vance. Vance, hailing from Woodbridge, VA is one of 10 finalists selected to complete a full transformation toward good health in hopes of winning the top prize of one million dollars.

CSNwashington.com will have full coverage of the Marine Corps Historic Half finish line available after the race. Check back Sunday and Monday evening to see yourself, friends and family cross the Historic Half finish line.

Ravens 2017 NFL Week 4 vs. Steelers: Date, Time, TV Channel, Live Stream, How to Watch and Betting Odds

It's probably safe to say the Baltimore Ravens would prefer to forget how badly their Week 3 London matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars went. 44-7 isn't exactly a close loss. 

It was not good. Quarterbacks Joe Flacco and Ryan Mallett shared time on the field, but they only combined for a total of 64 yards. Unfortunately for the veteran, Flacco threw two interceptions while Mallett helped get the Ravens' only touchdown. Meanwhile, Blake Bortles completed 20-of-31 passes for 244 yards and four touchdowns against Baltimore.

But it's a new week, and as the Ravens head into Week 4's game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, they're still 2-1 on the season and looking to add another notch to the win column. But the Steelers are looking to bounce back after a heartbreaking 23-17 overtime loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 3. 

Ahead of Baltimore's game against the Steelers on Sunday, here's everything you need to know.

John Wall urges NFL stars Rodgers and Brady to speak out against Donald Trump's comments

John Wall urges NFL stars Rodgers and Brady to speak out against Donald Trump's comments

With all the news surrounding President Donald Trump after his comments on protests in the NFL,  it was only a matter of time before athletes in other sports spoke out. During CSN Mid-Atlantic's coverage of Wizards Media Day, John Wall, along with Bradley Beal, spent several minutes discussing Trump's recent comments about the ongoing protests in the NFL and what they mean to him.

The 27-year-old point guard also talked about a need for the faces of the NFL to speak out. He made a point about how the league's top quarterbacks have to be the ones to take action.

"You have guys like Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers. love those guys, very talented. until those guys come out and speak, I don't think the nfl is going to make any adjustments," Wall said.

Wall went on to mention that during the controversy surrounding Donald Sterling, the top players in the NBA took action. He said Sterling was fired after guys like Lebron James and Kobe Bryant took action. 

The Wizards' point guard wants the faces of the NFL to do more. He doesn't think advocating for Colin Kaepernick to get signed is enough.

"You have to go out their and express your feelings and until they do that, I don't think anything is going to change," Wall said.
