{ jou travels } we run dc…

Last month Wayne and I had the pleasure to travel to our nation’s capital to run in the inaugural Nike Women’s Half Marathon DC, benefiting the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. (We seem to like destination marathons) We ran #BostonStrong, all 15,000 of us. The course was absolutely beautiful–running 13.1 miles with historic views of the Washington Monument, Memorial Bridge, Potomac River and the US Capitol Building. What else is wonderful about this race? The gorgeous limited-edition Tiffany finishers necklace! The necklace this year is a tasteful dog tag design of a woman running alongside cherry blossoms. The back is inscribed with NWM Halfย  ’13 Washington.

Post-marathon certainly deserves a guilt-free feast. After our race we trudged through the city (what felt like a journey) in search for Georgetown Cupcakes and Shake Shack. Georgetown Cupcakes was heavenly and we conquered practically the entire menu at Shake Shack. My favorite is the ‘Shroom Burger (vegetarian), crisp-fried portobello burger filled with melted meunster and chedder cheese, topped with lettuce, tomatoes and ShackSauce.

On our tourist days we visited the Smithsonian Natural History Museum, searched for cherry blossoms, fine Indian food dining at Rasika, helped Sara garden and ate Mexillant fish tacos. Thanks to our lovely friends Jeff & Sara for hosting us!
