Hi friends! Thank you for your great Girls on the Run advice on yesterday’s post! (If you missed it – I’m volunteering with them as a coach this fall for the first time.)

Running with the Pope + a Simple BBQ Dinner

Hello my friends! The District is buzzing with excitement today because the Pope is here! I’m steering clear of downtown the rest of the day, but this morning, my running buddy Sokphal and I decided to have an adventure: go on a run down to the National Mall and check out the action!

Hello my lovely friends! It’s SO nice out here in DC today – I’m loving this whole “August weather is really like September” thing we’ve had going lately! Hoping it’s here to stay. ;) I started my day today with a fun adventure with my buddy Chelsea: we signed up on ClassPass to check out the new-to-us classes at CrossFit Balance Georgetown.
