I won! Okay, it wasn't quite like this, but I did come in first of all the alumna at the 5k this weekend (it was held at my alma mater). Admittedly, I did get beaten by more than a few 9 year olds (the school has a lower, middle, and upper school). In any case, what an exciting way to being my competitive running career! The event was sponsored by many local businesses, so as a "winner," I received a gift card to Clyde's of Chevy Chase.

The Clyde's Restaurant Group of Washington includes many notable DC landmarks such as The Tombs (where my father and sister spent many a night during their Georgetown University days), 1789, and Old Ebbitt Grill. When I was on the crew team in high school, we used to always celebrate after a regatta with brunch or lunch at Clyde's in Georgetown. The chef at each Clyde's restaurant I've ever been to has been fabulous about accommodating my vegan requests, by either "vegan-izing" something on the menu, or creating a vegan masterpiece just for me. I can't wait to get back to DC to see what they cook up this time!
