Let me just tell you that getting up at 3:30 am after not having gone to bed until about 10:30 pm and running a half marathon the day before IS NOT easy. I have a hard time sleeping on planes, so that didn't really do me any good. Anyway, I arrived to my hotel around 11:15 am where thankfully I was able to check in early. I took a very, very quick 20 minute cat nap and then headed out to see the sites. Unfortunately it was cold and rainy on Monday - about 48 degrees and misty rain the entire day. Of course Tues and Wed when I was in meetings the weather was 70 and sunny. Anywho, I know most of you have probably been to DC before, but I hadn't. The city is just AWESOME! The monuments, museums, etc are so amazing. It was a great experience. I really want to go back now and spend some more time in this city. I just about walked my feet off.....seriously. I was so tired it was ridiculous. After spending about 6 hours walking around the city, I met up with a friend of a friend who lives in DC and she took me around to a few more spots and to dinner. She was so incredibly nice to do this. I didn't make it back to my hotel room until about 9:45 pm that night. I was exhausted!! I am still exhausted. Can't wait for the weekend.
Anyway, I know most of you have probably been to DC and have these pics yourselves, but here were a few of my favs. Notice the ominous clouds in the background of everyone - and most were taken during the day.
