My last run in DC started dark and early — just how I usually roll.I saved the BEST run for last because I met up with Leah and Miriam, my two long-time running buddies (<– that post is from 2012!!). We did a tour de DC, starting at Lincoln:Heading east toward the Washington monument and the sun Finishing at the Capitol, where my camera started to freak out a bit (I think it’s sad that we’re leaving DC, too).Camera still had the shakes when we took our final group run photo together — but that’s a good thing, because you can’t tell how teary-eyed I am in this shot. Nothing shakes the soul like a good running buddy.Miriam and Leah, I love you (and I’m putting it on the internet for the world to know). I am going to miss our runs (and our rages!) so incredibly much :(. Philly round II or some sort of reunion is in the works…! (planning and focusing on future travel/reunions is my coping mechanism)
Speaking of reunion, my parents are here!They came last night to help us with the packing extravaganza. First agenda item, though, was a wine/cheese extravaganza.We had some cheese and lots of odds and ends left over from our dinner party the other night, so threw it all together into quite a feast!The only effort really required was roasting these veggies and pouring wine. Not too difficult I can’t believe we’re actually packing up (today) and moving out (tomorrow) — and that I ran my LAST RUN ever in DC today! So much to come. Catch you tomorrow!
- If you have a running buddy, how long have you been running together?
- Wine: red or white?
- Any words of wisdom for mentally/emotionally handling a big move?
