Math for Running Parents

5 Nov

If you consider:

=amount of babysitting time on the clock

y=number of miles we want to run

z=amount of time needed to sit and enjoy dinner

Then coming up with a solution set of potential destinations should be easy, no?

Someone, somewhere out there could probably plot our decision-making process on a map.   In simpler terms our concept was: Run for an hour, eat/drink for an hour, cab it back home to relieve the babysitter.   

We looked at destinations between 5-6 miles away, and settled on Sine Irish Pub in Pentagon City.  The chilly weather made for a terrific run, through Clarendon, down Columbia Pike (which is looking pretty darn good these days), around the Air Force Memorial, and into Pentagon City.

Our reward for a fast run into Pentagon City. Yes, I realize that I shouldn’t be drinking a Corona at an Irish pub.
