Miss out on MCM registration? You can still sign up...

Want to run the 37th Marine Corps Marathon but unable to secure your bib in the ridiculously fast 2 hour and 41 minute sellout that occurred on registration day? Well you're in luck...

You still have two options to run in this year's race: sign up for the MCM Transfer Program or register as a MCM Charity Partner.

On Wednesday, June 20 unregistered runners will be able to sign up for the MCM Transfer Program, which will allow registered runners to transfer their 2012 MCM bibs to those on the list.

Registered participants will be able to transfer their entries to unregistered runners anytime between June 20 and August 31. After completing a transfer form, the registered participant will receive a unique code, link and password via email to send to the runner of their choice. Runners then registered through the MCM Transfer Program must pay a 30 transfer fee before September 7.

Want to connect with someone looking to transfer? Visit the MCM Facebook page or MCM Message Board.

Registered runners for the 2012 MCM will also be able to transfer from the full marathon to the MCM10K at no cost. Interested runners can do so now but must complete the process by September 7.

Want to run for a cause? Check out the MCM's Charity Partners and their MCM programs at www.marinemarathon.com. Many of them have entries available for those who want to help support their very worthy causes.

Capitals hold Tom Wilson out of practice following injury against Hurricanes

Capitals hold Tom Wilson out of practice following injury against Hurricanes

Capitals winger Tom Wilson was held out of practice Tuesday, a day after he suffered an upper body injury against the Hurricanes.

“Day away from the ice for him,” associate coach Todd Reirden said. “Just reevaluating. Day-to-day for him.”

It’s unclear exactly what happened to Wilson, who got clipped up high by Carolina’s Jordan Staal in the second period of Monday’s 2-1 overtime loss at Verizon Center.

Staal was whistled for elbowing. Wilson, meantime, was removed from the game for precautionary reasons.

Reirden on Tuesday again seemed to indicate that the team does not believe Wilson's injury is serious.  

“We’ll see how he is in the morning, let some things settle down,” Reirden said. “It’s preseason. It was hard practice after a game, so we’ll see where he’s at tomorrow.”

Redskins move Kory Lichtensteiger to IR, make add at center, per report

The Redskins may have a roster hole to fill at center and according to a report they are set to sign a veteran to do the job.

The Redskins are going to sign John Sullivan, who was the Vikings’ starting center from 2009 through 2014, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.

The 31-year-old Sullivan missed all of 2015 with a back injury and the Vikings released him on August 30 of this year.

Kory Lichtensteiger was placed on injured reserve due to a calf injury he sustained against the Giants on Sunday. Jay Gruden described Lichtensteiger’s situation as “week to week” during his press conference on Monday.

The Redskins will have to make a roster move when the do sign Sullivan, whether it’s Lichtensteiger to IR or something else.

If Lichtensteiger does go on injured reserve it will be the second consecutive year on the shelf for him. He suffered a neck and shoulder injury last year that had him on IR for eight weeks before he returned.

Due to the new injured reserve rules, Lichtensteiger would be eligible to return to the roster after missing eight weeks. The team does not have to designate anyone to return in advance but they can make only one such move during the season.
