IMG_0100

The GW Parkway Classic 10 Miler has been on my bucket list for years now. It’s an interesting race because everyone I talk to that has done it raves about it, and yet it’s not massively popular; you can usually sign up for the race right before it with no problems.

And then every spring, I fall in love with running all over again. I was planning on sleeping in this morning; I even signed up for a yoga class tonight after work at Epic Yoga in Dupont via ClassPass (it’s too Continue Reading …
