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.

So It’s my birthday! The last year in my 20s, the last year in the 25-29 running age group. And as i’ve stated a few times here i’m trying to do things that make me happy. I also realized this means i’ve been turning into a bit of a “Yes Man” and having a good time while trying new things and keeping busy.

Last week I got an email of the places DC serves bottomless brunch (both drinks and food at a set price/set hours). Without hesitation and a week of planning Emmeline and I hit up Zengo!

We have absolutely no problem talking and eating for hours on end. Don’t you love when you find friends like that? Especially friends you can talk about running to for hours and not feel bad about it. Or when you have bite sized waffles?

We started with breakfast faves, eggs benedict, waffles, bacon fried rice (haha), bloody marys, sake sangria (there was an asian fusion thing going on here) then moved onto lunch with sushi.

As the bottomless mimosas kept being topped off with extra champagne the fun pictures started happening. I’m pretty sure we said, “this is gonna be so hot.” haha

I guess the waiter liked our table–and the table next to ours–Emmeline found a soccer buddy to talk to–and he brought us mango shots. DELICIOUS!

and the shot!

About 2:00 we decided to hit up a museum. We chose the natural history. Neither of us had been there in a while and I got to learn all about Emmeline’s crazy adventures visiting Africa.

Inside the museum we took the only important pics of the day: and elephant butt & something that looks like something I don’t want to talk about, but couldn’t stop laughing at.
