Adjusting Expectations, the Journey Continues!

Children's Hospital over McMillan Reservoir

The Dullshick 1000 mile journey marches forward – though Rachel and I have had to adjust to the realities of our busy lives. The goal stands – we’ll hit 1000 eventually – but perhaps not in 2009. Weather, travel, paper-writing, restrictive parameters (we only tally miles walked together and those I remember map on MapMyRun.com), and the simple fact that we both have day jobs have made it surprisingly difficult to get in the 3ish miles per day required to hit the 1000 mile mark this year.

Anyway, by relaxing the parameters a bit we’re enjoying the journey at our on pace. Saturday we walked in the mud on the Mall, passing through the soggy Kite Festival and stopping in to check out the not-to-be-missed Robert Frank, The Americans exhibit at the National Gallery. Sunday afternoon, we took one of our best walks yet – up through Petworth, past Howard and the McMillan Reservoir, through LeDroit Park, Shaw, U Street, and back to Columbia Heights. We’re (casually) looking for potential homes – and were surprised by how appealing we found LeDroit Park – a neat, historic little neighborhood. Our total to-date – just over 150 miles.
