Washington DC By Foot

Could there be a better running town than Washington DC? It’s possible I’m sure, but our sightseeing run this morning knocked my socks off. Not literally of course, because that would lead to blisters, but you know what I mean.

Camille was thrilled to have a sleepover with best buddies the Hensleys last night, which meant Lee and I got to run together this morning. Our intention was to do a quick-and-easy 30-40 minute run to the National Mall and back, but there was just so much to see! So many places our feet could take us!

More than 5 miles and and an hour-and-a-half later, we made ourselves return to the hotel because we were thirsty and hungry. But if fuel hadn’t been necessary I think we could’ve gone on for miles more.

DC Run - The RouteWe weren’t speedy. We stopped often, took pictures, lingered at the memorials. We covered a lot of ground, and I was amazed not only by all the great, shady, picturesque trails we took, but also all the ones we didn’t have time to take. I do hope we return here one day soon, and I’ll be sure to have my running shoes on again so I can explore some more.

I usually post one morning run pic, but today I just couldn’t choose. Here are my favorites.
