I'm back from DC kids! I went up there last week for vacation and to celebrate this one's completion of her first Ironman! And the subsequent great news of her puppy Graham's recovery from emergency surgeries.

I also did a little sightseeing. Rode the metro to the Newseum and generally sweated my face off during the record high temps in the city.
|Foggy Bottom stop. Heh.|
Then there was this little tour we did. You may have heard about it. There were A LOT of cupcakes.

|Who wouldn't be this happy while on a Tour de Cupcakes?|
|Oh God. So. Many. Cupcakes.|

I cannot thank Katie and her husband Thom enough for opening their home to me during a chaotic time in their lives. I had a wonderful trip and it was so nice to meet their friends and the pups. I love those dogs for real.
We did get in a couple of short, easy runs which was perfect for me coming off of my "fake" injury and we also got in two tough (for me) swim sessions. Katie is a force to be reckoned with in the pool.
I'm happy to be back home in Florida as I missed my Lloyd and my bike. Augusta 1/2 IM training officially started yesterday and I've got a lot of catching up to do. Stay tuned for an actual post on .... RUNNING!
