Well, it seems that it took ten weeks before I abandoned one of my new years resolution to blog more regularly. But, it was in part because I was busy completing a different resolution that I didn't tell you about at the time (in case of utter failure). And that resolution was to complete the Cherry Blossom Ten Miler. Which I did.
Race Day was beautiful. The weather was a warm, breezy 70 degrees, the sun was out and everyone was in great spirits. The people cheering along the route helped to keep my spirits up as I ran from the Washington Monument, across the Memorial Bridge and back, down to the Kennedy Center, around the Tidal Basin, around Haines Point and back to the Memorial. And I beat my goal time of two hours by a whopping eleven minutes! Coming in at 1:48:59, I completed my first ten miler.
This restaurant has been buzzing since it opened, and I'm surprised it took me so long to make it over there, seeing as how their philosophy is very much in tune with mine.
