Easy flight, Em met me as I got off the Metro and we went home. Home this time is different than my previous visits as "we" are now at the Rocketships. So I need to orient myself and find my way around although truthfully it is not very different. The Rocketship is a top notch guy to let his GF's mom hang out on their couch taking up most of the living room for more than a few days!
I look half dead.
Emily looks amazingly fresh!
This morning Em and I took a 5 mile run - a loop, the best kind, past some of the monuments - GREAT! But I think it was exceedingly hot. I was soaking wet when we were done. It has certainly been humid in Vermont but the last few mornings when I have run it was in the 50s. Talk about perfect. Not the case this morning. I think it may have been in the 70s but I can't imagine what the humidity index was. I did not carry water and I think I will have to change that thinking even for a short run. At home I have to be going more than 10 miles to carry water and even then I don't always do it. I'm not saying that is a good thing, I am just telling you what I do.
I plan to hit up some museums today. Emily thinks I am going to walk to them (it isn't more than a couple miles or so) but I am thinking about the heat and I just may hop on the Metro. I'm not the one with sweat in the name of my blog after all.
Emily is even going to go to some museums with me which doesn't always happen. I have been wanting to go to the National Geographic Museum since I have been coming. But have we gone? Nooo. But the Rocketship also wants to go so now we're going. Hmm. Who has more influence with Emily?
I think there is an exhibit about Scott/Amundsen which will thrill me to no end. Seriously. I am a real Antarctica geek. It is my favorite thing I teach and I am rather passionate about it. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT! I also plan to go to the National Gallery of Art again - without Em and maybe the Smithsonian American Art Museum. I have never been there. And more!
Don't worry. I will keep you posted.
