I had a great run today with Emily. She went 22 miles and I went about 10. She was nice enough to go my pace for the beginning of her long run. We headed into Georgetown and then along the Potamac.
We ran past the Lincoln Memorial and across a bridge into Virginia.
Then we ran along the river until we came to another bridge and came back by the Jefferson Memorial.
It is really awesome to be running and looking at all of these monuments and memorials. We ran along the tidal basin
over to the the WW2 Memorial, then the Lincoln Memorial again,
by the Vietnam Wall, past the Washington Monument
and eventually by the White House back towards Emily's abode. She continued on her way whereas I continued eating like a 12 year old boy and refueled with Krispie Kreme doughnuts, a scone (although truthfully
Later today we went into Georgetown to do a little shopping and to grab some cupcakes from Baked and Wired.
We did quite a bit of walking and were both rather tired. Not really the best strategy for the day before a race but I am not in DC that often and when I am I want to run and eat when I can. It is a race with over 6000 people so I don't expect to be doing anything wonderful. But it will be fun!
