But this cool weather! This I can handle. I mean when I'm moving. If I'm still, I'll complain about the cold. A lot. Because I am a wimp about temperatures. Anyway.
Last night, I went to BFit in Logan Circle with my friend Barbara Lee, who had never been. Some girl I'd never seen before was teaching the class while the regular teacher, Amy, was on vacation. Now, I thought Linda - the studio's owner - was supposed to teach that class. But Linda was also out of town. And now that I know that's Amy's usual time slot, I will never go on a Wednesday evening ever again. Because Linda makes me want to die. But Amy...Amy makes me want to drown. Which is - I've decided - the manner in which I'd like to die the least. Out of all my options. But I'd do it to escape Amy's class. Is how brutal she is.

Today I'm sore, but I'm also really excited for exercise. And after running 3 miles Monday, without even straining, and no soreness the next day...I'm even excited again for the Army 10-miler this month! Which isn't to say I'm optimistic. I have strong doubts that I'll be able to run the whole thing. But I think I can at least run more than half of it by then. I've got a couple of weeks to train still.
In my over-enthusiasm for exercise, I've been looking up places to go in DC, and ummm there are plenty. If you're in the DC area, I highly recommend WelcomeOmDC. It focuses a lot on yoga, but there's no shortage of other disciplines featured, and there are really well-rounded lists of local studios. AND they tell you about places that are offering free/deeply discounted classes in blog posts. Love!
They also caused me to look up this place:
