Rabbit Rabbit!True, Rabbit Rabbit is apparently a British tradition. But other than that, I am keeping it very American today.A quiet run through the monuments today. I’m still feeling very zen after Saturday’s nature-full run. Does anyone else go through phases like this? Sometimes I go weeks at a time having very mellow runs; sometimes a streak of super-fast, high-energy runs; sometimes a string of no-good-terrible runs.
Speaking of terrible, our Mall is covered in scaffolding, cranes, and porta-potties. I still like it though!
One of the coolest things about living in the nation’s capital is that I’m surrounded by inspiring people. Of course, there are inspiring people everywhere! But I do feel like DC attracts a lot of driven, passionate people working in government, international politics, non-governmental organizations, think tanks, and… fitness??! Say what.
So when Sweetgreen invited me to hang out with these people last night I said YES.The “flash fitness” dinner party went as such. First, a butt-kicking in the form of bootcamp, barre, and yoga.We did a 15-minute circuit of each workout style. My buns are still burning from all the squats. Thanks, Ingrid! Our instructors: Ingrid Nelson (Nike/personal trainer), Lauren of Lava Barre, and Tano Mazi, yoga instructor. All of them teach in the DC area!After our sweat session the real fun began. Some healthy grub to fuel the fun…Honest tea. Honest-ly my favorite bottled beverage! No artificial sweeteners, but still low on sugar. It’s just simple and delicious.
And, of course, Sweetgreen’s seasonal salad of the month! But of course, the best part of the evening was meeting a handful of other bloggers and inspiring health-driven people in the area. It made waking up and getting my butt out on a run that much easier today!
I promise it’ll be easy for you, too. 🙂
