After yesterday's disappointment, and my continued frustration with old coaching, combined with our 8.5 hours spent at the Conference for the Engaged, we needed some fresh air this morning. So, after driving by the entrance to Fort Marcy every day for the past 7 years, we figured we'd stop there on our way up to Great Falls to see what was there. How on earth have I lived here this long and not known that there was such a great hiking trail so close to the house?
A real treat is the fact that you're right down at river level, in a part of the Potomac that is very slow moving and quiet. Here's a look at the Chain Bridge that crosses from VA into DC. As you can see, it was still enough to shine a reflection.
An hour and a half later, we had a nice workout, some quiet time together, and discovered yet another reason why living in Alexandria is so great. Now let's just hope the Skins don't bring back the frustration.
