I ate this for an impromptu 11 pm dinner:
Then I went for a 5 mile midnight run around the monuments (Mom, if you're reading this, don't worry, it's all a lie. I really just locked my door and went back to bed).
Don't I live in a cool place?? Feel free to come visit and run a race with me in this awesome city.
