We headed to D.C. on Friday, March 11th. We got to the city about 4:45PM (which was 15 minutes after the #werunsocial meet-up was set to start). We drove around the armory for almost an hour until Justin finally shoved me out at the crosswalk. Needless to say, the crossguard was NOT happy and he took it out on me- HA! Justin continued to circle the armory until I was done at the expo because there was NO parking. Rock and Roll, next year please open more lots.
I got to the armory doors when there was a minimal line, however, when I left 30 minutes later, it wrapped around the ENTIRE building!
I was completely flustered at the EXPO knowing that I had to pick-up my V.I.P package, parking information, bib, say hi to #werunsocial (if they were still there), and head back out to jump back into Justin's car because he was literally CIRCLING the armory over and over. I didn't have enough time to enjoy it, but I do recall it being smaller than I had imagined. I got everything done and ran into the tail-end of the meet-up. I snapped a picture some of the #rocknblog team and was on my way!
As always, I was powered by Chocolate Milk and Nuun. I ran in my trusty Asics. I sported my Garmin Forerunner 220 and Momentum Jewlery motivate-wrap, "love & gratitude".
In traditional Ashley fashion, we celebrated by heading to a winery, brewery, and dinner. Vino at The Barn at Hamilton Station. Beer at Corcoran Brewing. Dinner at Magnolia's at the Mill.
Happy Running! All the love and chocolate milk!
