Happy 11/11/11 - Veterans Day

Today marks the first time I've ever had Veterans day off of work. Not sure I deserved it as I'm not a Veteran and I didn't hit up any ceremonies today. However I wanted to take advantage of the day so I slept in, ran 3 miles, and then headed to Georgetown to explore and do some shopping.

I was happy to see flags hanging around the neighborhood. If you haven't been to the Georgetown area I highly recommend visiting. Not only are there high end shops and cupcakes (the line for Georgetown cupcakes was a block long), but what I enjoyed the most was all the old houses and beautiful fall trees.

I took the bus over and was there in less than 10 minutes, but on the way back when I checked the bus arrival time I found I had 26 minutes to wait. So instead of waiting I started walking along the bus route thinking it would catch up with me and I would enjoy a nice walk along the way. I ended up walking 2 miles back to my apartment because the bus didn't catch up with me until I was a block and a half from my apartment and I didn't feel like just riding the final block. I guess I am a professional walker.
