Where/When: Georgetown Running Co., 3401 M St. NW, Washington. Saturday, 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.
Why Go: New (school) year, new you! It's not too late to give up on those 2011 resolutions! Make plans to join this weekly running group if you're still trying to get in shape this summer.
Where/When: Rosslyn Gateway, 1911 Fort Myer Dr., Arlington. Friday, 8 p.m.
Why Go: If you've intended to make it to an outdoor movie this year, don't wait too much longer because there are only two more movies left in this summer-long outdoor film festival.

Where/When: Wolf Trap Filene Center, 1645 Trap Rd., Vienna. Sunday, 3 p.m.
Why Go: It doesn't get more summer-y than The Beach Boys. Before these warm days slip away from us altogether, get yourself out to Wolf Trap. You won't regret it!

Where/When: Verizon Center, 601 F St. NW, Washington. Friday, 7 p.m.
Why Go: If you're an American Idol fan, then this is a must-see concert for you this weekend. The tour features the top 11 finalists in the singing competition, including winner Scotty McCreery.
