1. I ran to work this morning. It was great. I got to sleep in almost an hour later than I would if I had run and gotten ready at home, yet I still had plenty of time for my run and wasn't late to work. I'm not sure why I didn't start doing this earlier! This is definitely going to become a part of my regular routine - especially on days that I need to get in a weekday medium-long run.
I also think I need to re-evaluate my morning routine. Why is it taking me so long to leave the house? I got ready in significantly less time at the office.
Some of the sights along the way:
2. The jury is still out on the Asics 2160, but after two runs I am leaning towards a favorable review. There has certainly not been an immediate "ugh, I hate these!" reaction. I also have not immediately fallen in love, but that's not necessarily a problem. Basically, I haven't really thought about them or noticed anything while running and really, that's probably what I should be looking for in a shoe. Also, most importantly, I love the lime green laces.
3. Last night was the second (of what will hopefully be many) Monthly DC Blogger Meetup. There was an initial discussion of having dinner at Graffiato, but the craziness of Restaurant Week got in the way and we ended up at the Front Page for happy hour. It was fun to meet some new bloggers and catch up with some familiar faces. And someday we may actually have dinner at Graffiato! Please join us next month if you are in the DC area. :)
