I am in DC right now for work. This is my first trip away from LBoogie and I thought I was be too sad to enjoy it. Well I was wrong, I complete miss him and my hubby J but I am having a blast. Today I got to my hotel and decided to go for a run. I was just going to go around my hotel in Old Towne Alexandra but based on the recommendation of Amanda, I decided to head into the city and run around there. I was just going to go for short 3 miler but ended up so engrossed in the sights of the city I ended up going 6.
I started out coming out of the Metro and just starting running. I got luck and after about a mile I ran into this
I took off towards my favorite spot in DC...
I don't know why but I love the Washington Monument and the area around it. Then I ventured down to the Mall and ran along there. I looking at Smithsonian Museum's and remember my childhood trips there. I stopped and snapped this picture.
I was hoping to do to run up the stairs ala Rocky ( I know that Philadelphia but I was going to pretend) but it was closed. So I just headed back down the mall and over to the Metro. It was such an amazing run. I wish all my runs could be in new and different places each time.
