Downtown Washington DC

This being my birthday, i figured itd be a good start into my 27th year to have a run. A good omen too, perhaps, that i will keep up my running regime the whole year. And why not? Ive been on it for almost a year now without big pauses.

So i took the metro from Takoma to Union Station and went off direction Capitol, passed the park where the president joggs too (or so they say), ran around the washington memorial, but i didnt have the heart to go to the Lincoln Memorial because we were just there a few hours before. The reflecting pool was frozen and D and A walked on it earlier but i didnt want to risk my only remaining dry pair of shoes.

I passed the white house and ran into the streets and took a biiiig detour before returning to Union, mostly cause i got kind of lost. I was away for a total of 1:15 but id say it was about 60 min of running, the rest orientation and i went into Safeway for a vitamine water in the end.

I would conclude that this was probably my most stunning jogging route so far.

The next day we fly to D's home and the next morning their scale reports a slight weight loss again, about 1.5 kg less than before leaving.

Grand Canyon, Best Western Hotel /gym
33 min on the treadmill (slightly drunk after a very fine dinner), took it very easy, 6.5 km incl cooldown.
Then i spent 20 min in the whirlpool and would have gone to the sauna too but it somehow didnt work.

Albuquerque, NM, on the hill
I went out right behind E's house and had a very funny 40 min run among rocks and cactus :) The town being very high above see level i had quite a difficulty breathing (yes, if i stayed longer i would have had a good 'blutdoping' for the halbmarathon :)). Very nice setting for a run otherwise.
The scale reports a slight weight loss (big relief after the heavy eating in TX)

A 40 min run on the Interstate 45 :)) Quite cult. Very windy and cold tho, very untypically so for Texas at this time of the year, or so they say. It should have been springy.

1:07, on the interstate 45 and then lost in the living compound of uncle H. I actually meant to go only 40-50 min but the compound is so big and the houses look so similar i took a while to find back. This is the second morning after i arrived, and S's breakfasts are so damn filling i already know i will need the workout to keep in shape :))
