running to stand still

This week at work was uber-stressful, so after spending some time shopping yesterday (and getting pink tulips) I turned to the thing I knew would make me feel better: my ipod and an early morning walk.

As I left the apt this morning at 7, with the cool air hitting my face, I couldn't help but miss the Mall.
I spent a lot of my evenings in DC walking the mall, especially when I was trying to make the decision to stay in the District or leave for ROA. On good nights, as the sun would set, I would do two "laps" or a little under 4 miles.

I missed the distinctive "crunch crunch" of the Mall.
