Now that Thanksgiving’s over it’s Christmas time! In the center of Silver Spring is a toy tree. It was a little strange, but colorful! Although I feel like it probably torments the kids as they walk by haha. It brought back a few memories from my childhood, like the turtle sandbox and the kitchen set. Let’s just hope they donate the toys when the tree comes down.
Over the weekend I was invited to run the 11th annual Potomac River Run Marathon on May 4th. This will be my 2nd marathon ever! I haven’t ran one since Oct 2011. If you remember it was a disastrous race, so i’m stoked to get the chance to have a marathon I can use as a practice run before I attempt a more serious race in the fall. The Potomac River Run Marathon is a flat out and back TWICE course. Yes you read that correct, you go out and back for the first half, and the same out and back for the 2nd half. Like I said it will be a really good training marathon. Especially for the mental part.
