Boring pictures today

Or boring compared to some other days at least.

We headed out for DC this morning and decided to take the longer, more scenic route. We started out by heading across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, deemed one of the seven engineering wonders of the modern world. It's a 20 mile bridge with tunnels built in to create shipping channels.

We drove up near Chincoteague, where I lived a year as a kid. It didn't particularly bring back specific memories, but it was kind of odd emotionally to be in that area for the first time in a long time. I kept thinking about how completely different it would have been to grow up there rather than in Alaska.

We arrived in DC and Nate and I spent far too long looking for parking for our trucks. We're staying in Arlington right next to Reagan National Airport, so we ended up parking the trucks at the airport in economy parking. It's the only open-air overnight parking we could find. Then Nate did his whole psychic thing again as we were walking to find some food and said he wanted Chipotle. Sure enough, a block up the street we found one.

After finding food, we met up with Lyndsay and Molly for a productive meeting regarding our grassroots efforts coming up for the Chicago Marathon.

I've tentatively made plans to see both Rhett and Perry tomorrow either before or after our evening track club event, but if it doesn't pan out at least I'm back for a much longer period of time next week.

I'm ending the evening with a blog post (obviously) and drafting an email I'll probably never send for the sake of some catharsis.
