It was a crisp morning and this was a much-needed run. There was a lot of stop-and-go along the streets to and from The Mall even in the pre-dawn hour. I was the only person at the Lincoln Memorial, my favorite spot in DC. I also like the Korean War Memorial so I detoured over to see it after visiting Abe. The sculpted combat soldiers in the dim lighting of the display were haunting, as always. The Vietnam War Memorial always has a reverent feel to me, day or night.
I went back up to the Capitol Building then found Pennsylvania Avenue to 15th Street to K Street and the hotel.
This was a good run.
