DC Time!

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 heading into DC. 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. It started at Zengo for brunch.

It was so sunny, warm and beautiful I turned into a tourist and walked for several hours around the district.

The day continued with walking around the Natural History Museum and then back home.
