7.5 Miler

20 Nov

Perfect running weather today!   We started out at the Iwo Jima Memorial and headed out over the Key Bridge.  A bit overcast, but still beautiful. 


View from the Key Bridge at the beginning of our run.

Running through Georgetown early in the morning is always nice, as you avoid the crowds, but can still conduct some quick window shopping.    And apparently, Christmas has arrived early in D.C.


Christmas decor outside Clyde’s of Georgetown (home of a fantastic brownie sundae).

We ran up Wisconsin and down Reservoir Road.   It’s my old neighborhood, home to Georgetown University Hospital (all 3 of my kids were born there).  Had to laugh a bit at what appeared to be some remaining Halloween decorations…or political statement (??). 


Is this Halloween decor or a political statement?

Running down Canal Road, I couldn’t help but notice dozens of trashed GU and gel packs littering the sidewalk.  Seriously guys, these things are not biodegradable…what makes you think you can just trash the neighborhood?   Just a thought:  maybe GU or CLIFF could develop a more environmentally friendly version…



Lastly, here’s a quick review of my new Patagonia Better Sweater Beanie:  loved the look and felt that it provided great warmth.  Only issue is that even the size LARGE didn’t fully cover my ears.   It’s great for cooler autumn days, but may not work during the cold winter months.

    Sounds like a great run…envious. Our afternoon was spent “running” to Chuck E Cheese….
