I almost felt like it was a professional development workshop when I arrived at the base of the Washington Monument this past Saturday. I huffed and puffed and looked in front of me and behind me at My Nation’s Capital and thought, “Wow, I feel patriotic right about now.” And then I remembered that I get to sing the National Anthem again, and soon.
The thought accompanied me as I ran the 5k back to my friends’ house in Capital Hill.
As I inch towards the mic this Saturday morning before a bunch of people who are Pedaling the Cause, I’ll surely hold that view and feeling in my mind…and then I’ll sing about it. Not a bad hour of professional development, eh?
