Monthly Run to Dinner/Drinks

24 Mar

Finally got a sitter for the kids!  Mike and I took advantage of the time away to run on the amazing Arlington County trail system.   We started on the Custis Trail, and continued on to the W&OD Trail and Four Mile Run, right into Shirlington. 

Despite the rain, it was an amazing run.  Just over 6 miles, beginning with rolling hills and finishing with a long, flat sprint into town.  Generally, the trail is packed with bikers, walkers, and other runners….but with the downpour, we had the course to ourselves…except for the two little fawns we saw crossing the trail around mile 4. 

After the run, we met my sister and friends at Bungalow Billiards (we purposefully chose a place we’d never been to before).  It’s a sprawling sports bar/pool hall in the heart of Shirlington.  The food was good and the beer was cold, so I’d definitely consider going back…especially since they host a neighborhood runner’s club every Tuesday night.  I love the idea of doing a weekly 5k with a large group, then grabbing dinner and drinks!  Happy running!
