Sightseeing trough running

Washington D.C. is a really lovely city for running – I am staying next to Capitol Hill and have been able to run down to and across Potomac River two afternoons/evenings in a row. Going quite slowly it is a run of one hour along the National Mall and Constitution Gardens and in that time you pass all major sights like the US Capitol, Washington Monument, the White House, the WWII and Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Lincoln Memorial and Arlington Memorial Bridge.

The only negative thing is that it is quite flat. However, I did manage to run uphill again for an hour this morning on the treadmill before sunrise and my meeting started with breakfast. Surprisingly, my legs feel despite three good exercises the past day very fine tonight.
