Mile 0

January 2, 2009

Inspired by a recent conversation estimating our mileage on foot as a couple, Rachel and I decided we could plausibly walk 1000 miles in a year. So, yesterday on January 1 we clocked miles 0 through 9. We walked along old Klingle Road, which winds through a valley passing below Connecticut Ave at Cleavland Park.  The road  looks long-neglected but has actually been the focus of considerable agitation both by people who what to save the road and those who want to save the valley (for now, I gather, the road looks dead). It was beautiful and we agreed we should return when the leaves return. We walked west past National Cathedral to Battery Kemble Park in NW DC, down to the C&O Canal trail along the Potomac, through Georgetown (because we were cold) to the Metro home. We agreed that Day 1 results are promising. Here’s a map.
