Sunday Long Run in D.C.

10 Mar

Today was, by far, the prettiest day of the year…and with bright sunshine/temperatures in the 60’s, it was a perfect day for a long run.

Turns out that everyone in D.C. had the same idea!  The trails and parks were packed: tons of runners and cyclists outside enjoying the weather after last week’s “snowquester” (really just a couple of inches of government-closing slush).

I ran from my home in North Arlington, down the Custis Trail, across the Key Bridge through Georgetown, along the Potomac to Hain’s Point.  A perfect 6 mile (mostly flat) run.

The Georgetown Waterfront Park is one of my favorite summer mid-point running stops…and even though the splash fountain is off for the season, I stopped at the park along the way.  Glad I did!  It’s wonderful seeing so many people ( tons of families) outside enjoying this recently upgraded National Park.  If you’re in the area and looking for a relaxing destination, you have to check this place out…and don’t forget to make a post-run stop at the Hershey’s Ice Cream Parlor right across the street.  Happy Running!

    I was on my bike and it was so crowded, but I’m glad we enjoyed it after today’s gloomy weather!
