Heading back to my old stomping grounds
After a great weekend of baseball, it was time for me to head on to our Nation's capital. The morning was spent picking up some last minute supplies for the road. I bought some grapes and blueberries for snacking on and a 35-pack of water bottles.
Part of the challenge for me on this tour is to not gain 100 pounds. As you have no doubt noticed by now, the food choices I have been making at the parks are not necessarily the healthiest options. In preparation for this tour I dropped 45 pounds in just over four months. I won't subject you to the before and after pictures, but trust me, I look very different. In an effort to keep as much of the weight off as possible I will be consuming as many fruits and vegetables as I can handle during my car rides.
This is my shortest stretch of travel. My starting odometer is pictured right.
I have to thank the Sidhu family for being amazing during my stay with them. They fed me, gave me a comfy bed to sleep in and did my laundry. They set a dangerous precedent for my future hosts on this tour.
What I listened to while driving:
You made it Weird - Jay Mohr
I am staying with my buddy Josh in Arlington, VA. Josh and I went to high school together in Michigan. He and I bonded over our love of all things Detroit sports when we were teenagers. I got to his apartment early in the afternoon with enough time for me to get a workout in and eat some dinner with Josh.
Today was a rather uneventful day. If you have anything that you want to hear from me on my tour during my off-days let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org
