The RB, Kate, and I met for one more run this morning. We set out before the sun and the city were awake, and headed down toward the Mall.
On the way, we ventured into the GW Hospital for a pit stop, met a Police barricade on Constitution Avenue (apparently investigating a “suspicious vehicle”…), said hello to the sun as it finally woke up over the monuments, and looped back up Connecticut Avenue.
This cool morning could not have been more accomodating; I tried to focus on enjoying the run and the company, instead of our impending departure and cross-country drive. My final DC run (for now! I know I’ll be back 🙂 ) ended after 7 miles, and a quick “sprint” to get the energy out of these legs.
To sum up my running & adventures in one of my favorite cities, I bring you a photo journey. Starting with my first race in DC – also the first time I met, and challenged, Ivan – including my favorite sites & people, an introduction to the tradition of Post-race/run Mimosas, and ending with my last race as a DC-resident:
Cheers, DC! You were my first love.
I’ll catch you kids on the flipside, from Colorado.
