Georgetown with Marie :)


Monday: 3m 9:25/pace

Last weekend, my BFFFF came into town and she’s never been to the DC area, so we started our weekend at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor for breakfast and had crab cake eggs benedict & waffles. Being the professional I am, i forgot to take pictures, so just imagine how good those Maryland crab cakes were on top of Mr. Eggs Benedict…mmmm.


Then we came to the amazing idea of trying something new, different and SUP’ing came across the table. After we stuffed our faces breakfast we threw on bathing suits and headed into Georgetown. If you’re interested in paddling or kayak’ing on the Potomac River head over to Everyone was super friendly and laid back, which is just what we needed.


I didn’t know what to expect and i thought would be a harder than it was. We both started on our knees, stood up and just cruised around for an hour. It was so relaxing & freeing and I can’t wait to go again!

I’m sure we probably burned like, 1000 calories in that hour so we had to eat some of it back and headed to one of my favorite cupcakeries, Baked & Wired.



flapjack (maple & bacon), lemon, chai & coconut

Baked & Wired is just off of M street along the canal—very pretty walk and less congested than the main street.



And we saw this little guy big turtle in the canal..


If the cupcakes weren’t enough we almost passed by this place…


I got the smore’s flavor..


Now that i’ve successfully made myself hungry, I gotta grab lunch. Hope everyone is doing well! Expect a recap of my running life from last week soon, it’s progressing slowly but surely!

  1. I’m hungry now, as well! What a trip! ❤ And what a great training week! Woot!

  2. Those cupcakes look incredible!

  3. Hey – all of that stuff looks great! Lisa volunteered to make some cookies (including snicker-doodles, chocolate chip, madeleines and meringues) for a co-worker’s daughter’s wedding reception … so she and I made test batches of the madeleines and meringues Sunday night because she is less sure of her mastery of getting them to look good as well as taste good … and they were great. As I always say, I am a pretty good baker, but she is just nuts … 🙂

    As for ‘sup … back from vacation, working, running, hanging with the family, blogging … life. And it has been pretty good, I must say. My blogging topics seem somewhat ‘serious’ for mid-summer, but they are lighting up with mega-comments, which is always great!

    Glad you are progressing carefully … keep it up and stay healthy!

  4. Fun times! Please tell me where you got this crab cake with eggs benedict? I need that in my life immediately!
    I don’t make it down to Georgetown nearly enough. Must find that macaron place!
