The first part of the walk was in the rain but it was uncharacteristically warm here in DC so it felt nice. We brought an umbrella but used it only to cover our electronics as we took pictures. We walked uphill through the very crowded, very well-lit zoo, and I felt a little sad knowing it was probably the last festive thing we'd do this holiday season.
Obviously, this 5k was no race for me, but it was fun to cover the miles with Joshua. It was the only thing we left our home to do all day and, when it was over, we returned to finish January 1st off in my favorite way: with a big plate of nachos.
Happy New Year!
