Also: excited to get back to DC after almost 2 years, to stay with Michael and see my long-ago roommate Ryan and chow pasta with Alan. Head past the monuments. The Potomac. Arlington National Cemetery.
More excited, sincerely: that the the only major hills come at Miles 2 and 7 instead of 17.
(Yeah: Boston, I'm talking about you....)
Although: DC, it's you I'm talking about between now and October 30.
Bring it on!
