Exciting news, my friends: the Washington Monument is officially back open for business!

Well, my friends, apparently DC has decided it’s summer already. In what feels like a very sudden change, everything is now green and the air is heavy and humid. Is it bad that I almost, just for a second on this morning’s run, had this thought: “I kind of miss the polar vortex.” I mean, I don’t miss it in real life – I’m loving Continue Reading …
