Since this race was what inspired Kelly and I to start our blog in the first place, I figured it was deserving of a two-part post.

And this one, my personal favorite.

We left for DC very worried about the weather. Hurricane Sandy heading toward the east coast, and a snowstorm coming from the opposite direction. First stop was the expo. Well organized, super crowded. A couple of my fave vendors were there: RunningSkirts and Nuun.

They both powered through one mile! And they got their medals from a Marine too.

Next up was Georgetown Cupcake. Anna is obsessed with the show DC Cupcakes, so I promised. Let the carb-loading continue….

They chose the chocolate, I opted for the red velvet and salted caramel. Yes, both. And it really was all that and more.
