It’s no secret that I run at o’dark-thirty in the morning, and when you see these pictures, I think you’ll understand why. There are so many magnificent monuments in Washington D.C., and they are even more glorious at dawn. Here’s what I saw on one of my recent sunrise runs.
We started at the Iwo Jima Memorial.
We ran across the Memorial Bridge to the Lincoln Memorial.
We looped around the Lincoln Memorial and ran along the Reflecting Pool,
to the Washington Monument.
We headed back along the Tidal Basin, stopping at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial.
When we turned around, we saw this sunrise behind the Jefferson Memorial.
I’ve shared more details on where I like to run in Washington, D.C. over on the blog for the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run–I’d love for you to check it out!
