November Five By The Fifth Virtual Race Recap
Thanks again to Laura for hosting the Fall 5 and 10 Virtual Race series!
Who would have guessed that I would be running my November miles in a t-shirt and shorts? But it was in the 70s the day before, and in the upper 50s when I headed out for my o’dark-thirty run.
Winter is coming, though. They started installing the ice skating rink at Washington Harbor and plan to have it open by Thanksgiving weekend. This year I have to go skating more than once!
My friend and I headed out for a 7-ish mile run up along the National Mall and up to the Captiol. (We did not run up Capitol Hill this time!) They are almost finished repairing the Washington Monument from the earthquake damage, so I stopped to take one more picture of it all decked out in scaffolding.
I also thought the entrance to the Air and Space museum looked pretty cool in the dark.
I felt pretty accomplished for finishing a 7+ mile run by 7:15 on a Saturday morning, but my friend was off to coach her kids’ soccer games, while I was heading home to enjoy a leisurely morning sipping coffee and catching up on Facebook!
Is there winter weather where you are yet?
Do you want to come ice skating with me?
