Washington, D.C., Part 1

Last week I was fortunate enough to spend a few days in Washington D.C. for the second time this year. Earlier this year I went to D.C. for the first time ever (here) for a training and last week I want for the advanced version of the same training on grant financial management with the Department of Justice. On the first night I got in I took a train to Baltimore to see my cousins. It was really fun to see them and catch up with them and I am so glad I was able to go. The hotel I stayed at was really cool and was a former post office dating back to 1839. It was really cool to see how they remodeled it and the location was great. After training my first day I headed to the Smithsonian American Art Museum which was really awesome. It was literally right outside my hotel, free, and open until 7p.m. I really liked the Civil War section as well as the special Babe Ruth exhibit. After walking around for a while I headed over to my favorite pizza place, &pizza. It's so good! The next morning I got up early for a 7 mile run around the Capitol, Supreme Court and National Mall. As much as there are lots of hills and stoplights in the city, D.C. is a really cool city to run in. It was also not nearly as cold as I thought it was going to be. All of the monuments are little up at night so running is a really great way for me to see more of D.C. on such a short trip.

There was a lot of construction around the white house so I couldn't get as good of a shot but still cool to run by there.
