Washington, D.C. After an evening visit, I again ran the extended version of what I've called the Memorial Tour, but I started it from Ohio Dr. From the John Ericsson Memorial circle and Ohio Dr. in West Potomac Park, and Independence Ave. I went up Independence Ave. to the Kutz Bridge, around the Tidal Basin to Ohio Dr., past the Jefferson Memorial, over 14th St. Bridge to the Mt. Vernon Trail, around Lady Bird Johnson Memorial looping under the George Washington Pkwy., to the footbridge over the Boundary Channel into Virginia, along the North Pentagon Parking lot, to the trail along S. Washington Blvd., to the Mount Vernon Trail, to Memorial Bridge, to and around the outside part of Lincoln Circle, to Daniel French Dr., SW, to Independence Ave., to Ohio Drive, NW. It was 46 F with no winds, and a nice moon. I had sweat bottoms but midway at a convenient and still open bathroom stop, I took off my sweat jacket. There were several other runners on the trails and walkways. I saw a few police but no large preparatory force. My lower back has been a little achy but didn't bother me when running.
