I was too busy talking about nachos yesterday, but I wanted to stop and say thank you to everyone who commented, called, tweeted, emailed, Facebook-ed, texted — you get the idea — me with good lucks and congrats on my marathon. It really, really meant a lot and I’m so honored and encouraged that people cared about my 26.2-mile adventure! Some people say that running is a solo sport, but I disagree. I felt like all my friends and family were jogging right beside me during every mile. Thank you.
And today, friends actually were jogging right beside me. “Ladies’ group” (we still need a name or something you guys) went out for a very slow, very short jog (because my hamstrings are still hurtin’). I’m grateful to have friends who run. We just get each other.The streets must have missed me during the taper/recovery period because people are dumping furniture everywhere. In less than five miles I spotted one dresser:Two mattresses, and another dresser:I missed you too, street furniture.
Thanks to DC Yoga Week, I was able to stretch it out last night for free! I headed to Embrace Yoga.This little studio on Columbia Rd. NW was really charming. My only complaint is that the sign-in desk and studio share the same room — so if a student comes in late, it really disrupts the class. Not that I really take yoga that seriously to where it would bother me, but you know. Some people really find their zen in the yoga world and get mad when people tamper with it.
But anyways, back to the class. It was a lot more challenging than I expected — in a good way! I broke a sweat and didn’t get bored, which are my two main criteria for yoga success.But really, back to the street. Just one more mattress:
And some more stuff. Anthony saw the DC bulk trash pickup men the other day, and took a picture of them because he knows my passion for junk. Just look at their bounty!I guess it’s the end/start of the month, so people are ending leases and tossing their stuff. Here’s to a furniture-filled May!
