DC Date Remix!

Monday: 3m easy 9:55/pace, 45min total body strength

Tuesday: 5m easy 8:56/pace

I’m still riding the “love the long run” train. Sunday was no different than the last several weeks as I set out to run 12 miles. I got up at 6:15am to fit in the long run before brunch in DC with Cameron. Seriously I am NOT a morning person, but if you dangle the brunch carrot in front of me, i’ll do anything at 6am. I like eggs and coffee more than I like a lot of people.

Anywho, the run was lovely! I was super relaxed, kept my watch covered up and enjoyed being one of the early morning runners out on the trail. Nothing out of the ordinary happened, but sometimes those are the best runs.

The rest of this post is weird because I literally lived this same day over a year ago with Emmeline. If you want to see similar pictures you can click here. Cameron and I went to Zengo for brunch. I’ve wanted to take him since my first visit so I was super happy to finally get to.

It was so sunny, warm and beautiful we turned into tourists and walked for several hours around the district. Also- i made cameron do this picture. I couldn’t stop laughing and he was a good sport haha.

Our day ended with walking around the Natural History Museum and then we grabbed a milkshake from Hard Rock before heading home.

I got a boring vanilla shake and he got this carmel bacon thing. I don’t even know, it was delicious.
