Week in Review: 8/18 – 8/24

One if by land … Wait, sorry, wrong war. The “Flee the British 5K,” which was held Sunday, commemorates that other war against the Brits. The run was actually held 200 years to the day that the British torched DC during the War of 1812. According to the website, the fun run allows you to “feel what it’s like to have the British on your heels as you scurry to the finish line.” Unfortunately, the DC residents back in 1814 didn’t have the latest, ultra-light, gel-cushioned running shoes.
