The Cherry Blossoms

I can’t believe it is already Thursday and almost Easter!!!

I considered Monday an active recovery day and did a lot of walking around DC. We have been looking forward to seeing the Cherry Blossoms at DC, and Monday was the perfect day for it!

They were beautiful. We probably missed the peak by a day or two but there were still tons and there was a lot less people than there would have been over the weekend!

We are really enjoying getting to know the area that we live in better!

My husband is the photographer 🙂 and he took some great pictures!!!!


Tuesday I got back to running. It was my first run since the half on Sat and I did 5 miles….I probably did them a little too fast for a recovery run, but I am glad that I did! As soon as I got in the car it started to POUR!

Tuesday- 5 miles- 8:01

Wednesday- 6 miles-  8:42 pace

Thursday 6.5 miles-  8:16 pace


Have you ever been to DC?

Anyone race the Cherry Blossom 10 mile?

    So beautiful! I haven’t been to DC since I was about 12. I definitely want to go back and take the kids someday. It’s such a beautiful city and so, so much to do.
