DC is always about eating as well as running. Here are a few of the good things I ate.
Peanut butter and banana panini - don't judge. It's the best.
A new find - Roti maybe? Excellent!
Frozen yogurt with lot of hot fudge after the race - well
Delicious cupcakes from Baked and Wired. It's vacation for sure!
When I am in DC with Em I am always amazed at how much walking we do. I love to walk but it seems to tire me out even more than running. We estimated at a minimum walking of 8 miles, 6 miles and 5 miles on 3 consecutive days. That is on top of running and racing. I also rediscover that when I visit DC walking aggravates my heel more than running. Most of the time I wonder which heel it is that bothers me because it isn't bothering me. But when I walk a lot I need no reminders.
After the race I visited first The American History Museum and made a quick pass through a display I hadn't seen. But it was so crowded I left and visited the American Indian Museum which wasn't crowded at all. I enjoyed it a great deal. Then I decided to walk back to Ems. I love passing the White House on the way.
The Air and Space Museum - just because it's pretty
I did not get lost this year unlike last year when I walked back from the St. Patrick's Race. Yay me!
I was back at work today and rather than missing two days I felt like I had missed 10. It was rather overwhelming to say the least. Then I had to leave early to go to the oral surgeon - fun times. But tomorrow I can do some catching up, please.
