Monuments at Midnight

On Christmas Eve, just before midnight, I joined about twenty other Z'ers on the second "mostly annual" Monument Run.  It was a crisp 35 degrees out; many people brought their dogs; and everyone looked forward to the hot chocolate and assorted... stimulating refreshments at the end of the run.

Three miles later, everyone had smiles on their faces.  The Mall is a picturesque place even at the worst of times, but late at night, in the crisp winter, and with nary a car or person in sight, it's something to behold.  

Merry Christmas, everyone!
