Old Town Alexandria
Specating at the National Marathon
After all my spectating fun yesterday, Alison and I took Clyde for a walk around her neighborhood.
We didn't get far before we stumbled upon a loose dog wandering around. We were able to get a hold of him and he had a name and phone number on his collar tag that we called. The owner said they would be by to pick him up. We attached Clyde's leash to him and I held Clyde, since he was a big dog and harder to control. Then we went back to Alison's and she fashioned a leash (MacGuyver style) out of a belt and caribeaner so we could walk both dogs while waiting for Tiger's dog mom to come get him.
After about 15 minutes, Tiger was reunited with his owner. Our good deed for the day was complete!
We finished our scenic walk around a nearby pond with a wooded trail surrounding it.
Then it was back to the house to get ready for our night out.
We met up with many of the bloggers in DC at Northside Social.
I had a glass of Argentinian Malbec (I'm so predictable) as I mingled with the bloggers.
Alison is a reader, but I'm not sure she was totally prepared for the chaos of a blogger meet-up! She held her own ;)

It was fun seeing so many familiar faces. After the place cleared out, Amanda, Lauren, Alison, and I walked a couple blocks over to a Thai place for dinner.

I ordered the vegetarian Thai Ginger. It was great :)
These girls were so much fun! We had a blast talking blog gossip, work, TV, and making fun of the weird clubby house music the restaurant was playing. Made me wanna fist pump!
Amanda and I have been "friends" through blogging for a while, so it was great to finally meet her in person. She's a sweetheart, just as I suspected, and a fellow former UNH student, so we also caught up about that.
Well, I'm off to wrap up my DC visit!
