For those who wish to see our monuments…and cannot…
So the running group that I belong to is preparing for a 10K run in November. We train two weekday evenings and early Saturday morning, Usually we run various places in Montgomery County, but this past Saturday we ran on the Mall. Metro was on good behavior and we took the first train of the day downtown. After a group pic at Union station…we ran towards and then away from the Capitol building
and then onwards to the Lincoln Memorial. We did run near the Vietnam Memorial but not directly in front of it. While on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial I discovered that my phone has a panorama picture mode…who knew?
and ran alongside the reflecting pool on our return journey. By that time the town was a bit more alive with tourists getting off buses to view the sights. We greeted them, wishing them a good day in our town, and received cheers and words of encouragement for our run. We must have been quite a sight…a group of 30, 40, 50, and 60-somethings running down the path.
