Sometimes I get wrapped up in daily tasks and take living here for granted, so with the arrival of Cherry Blossom season, I decided to put on my tourist hat and begin tackling number 18 of my 30 for 2012 list - Tour DC more often.
I should also mention how much I love smartphones. I mean, it's pretty amazing that you can take high quality pictures, access tons of data, and call and text people with one little device.
Finally, you already know how much I love running.
Earlier this week I combined all of these things into one for this tutorial on how to tour Washington, DC landmarks in under an hour. All you need to follow this tutorial is a smartphone and a good pair of running shoes. Actually, come to think of it, this is a pretty good way to tour any place you are interested in seeing lots of in a short amount of time.
Step 1: lace up your running shoes
Step 2: make sure your phone is in hand and fully charged
Step 3: begin running and stop whenever you see a photo op you would like to take advantage of
That's basically all you have to do and you should end up with results like this:
