This past weekend I was in DC and I took full advantage of my hotel location and went for two great runs. Unfortunately, I also ended up with epic blisters on my heels and I haven’t been able to wear shoes since Saturday.
I mean. That view.
Friday ended up being really cloudy and my photos were ok, but not as great as Saturday’s photos.
My run on Friday was 4.25 miles. And then I went on a 3.5-mile walk with a colleague.
My goal this whole time was to see the White House. I ran the Nike Women’s Half in DC two years ago – and we never saw the White House! This time around, I was staying a few blocks from it, so I saw it several times.
On Saturday, I met a Twitter friend who was also in DC for a conference. We set out to run 3 miles, and I ended up with 5. (And I wonder where my blisters came from….I blame the Lincoln monument.)
It was a memorable trip, and I’m so glad I skipped the fitness center this time (though Hyatt fitness centers tend to be amazing!)
I started this series in June, and I’d love to see where you’re running! This linkup will be open for two weeks. Plenty of time to compile a post.
Do you run in new cities? Do you prefer gyms versus the open road, if given the choice?
