Thoughts on a Monday

It's Marathon Week in DC and I'm not running. I'm fine with this decision...the lingering knee pain I still have is enough to make me think twice about toeing the line, but I'm still bummed about it. I posted a message on Twitter this morning to see if anyone knows anyone with a bib for the 10k because the idea of the race floating right past my apartment without me having some part of it is heartbreaking.

So if you know anyone with a 10k bib, please send them my way!

It was a horribly gloomy weekend in DC but The Pilot was home for his last weekend of vacation before heading back to work yesterday, so Saturday, we headed out to Old Town Alexandria for some window shopping.
The tree lined streets of Old Town.
I love heading into Old Town and perusing all of the little shops! You can get some great finds there and I'm definitely planning on doing some of my Christmas shopping in Old Town!

I was super excited to find that they have a 10,000 Villages there! If you've never been to the fair trade shop, I highly recommend it! It's one of my favorite places and I always find great gifts there!

Colder temperatures have hit DC and I am not happy about it. I am not at all one of those "OMG I LOVE THE FALL! I LOVE IT WHEN THE MORNINGS ARE 42 DEGREES" type of people. Yes, the leaves are pretty, but when I have to start layering my clothing, my mood starts to go south pretty quickly. I am very much prone to Seasonal Affective Disorder and want it to be summer again now, please and thank you.

This week is going to involve a lot of late nights, but that's ok. I'm determined to make the best of it. Hope you all have a fabulous week!


  1. I've never heard of 10,000 Villages. Where in Old Town is it?
    I love walking around Old Town when the weather is nice...especially when it's the holiday season and the trees are all lit up, it's super pretty!

  2. Old Town looks adorable! I'll have to visit there someday :) I hope you can find a 10k bib to participate in the race this weekend. Haha, I love the colors of fall, and I *do* love the brisk mornings, but I'd rather just have it be one temp and not fluctuate like it is today (40's in the morning and mid 60's the rest of the day.....too hot for a sweater!)

  3. Haha I am the same about Fall. I love all of the colors and there is always something to do in my town during the fall season but the fact that it keeps getting colder and I have started turning the heat on at night makes me very bitter.

  4. I ran this morning and was stoked it was 48 degrees hahah - feel free to join me at the aid station on Sunday!!

  5. I LOVE 10000 villages. We have one in Burlington, VT. It is a great place for wonderful stuff, not too expensive and rather unique.

  6. I'm one of those people who love 40 degree mornings, but then again, I don't get out to run around in them for a while. Lol.
