Are you looking for a mom-focused fitness group on Capitol Hill? The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is starting up a runners club program that also raises money to help fight cancer.
The training season starts on Saturday, and we’re aiming to recruit close to 80 moms. The Capitol Hill group meets on Saturday mornings at Yards Park, and we will train for the Pacers Veteran’s Day 10k at the Tidal Basin in November.
If you’re thinking about signing up for a race or just want to get back into a running routine, this is an excellent way to get started. And, if you’re still not sure about joining, read this story from one of our alumni moms, who trained for and ran in the Capitol Hill 10k last year.
Learn more about the program here and email me if you’re interested in joining!

It’s so nice when neighbors just move down the street, isn’t it? Thanks to photographer Mike Licht for letting us know and helping Brice’s Barbershop with some viral marketing. And, a special thanks for being a great THIH Flickr group member!
We encourage all of our readers to join-in and share their photos with the group. Maybe some day you will be featured.

When looking for subjects to write about, I try to stay within the bounds of greater Capitol Hill, which are generally accepted to end at Florida Avenue on the north side. But occasionally, there is something close by that I really want to write about – so I’ll stretch the rules ever so slightly. So, today, follow me just across Florida Avenue for “the World’s largest, Grandest, Best Amusement Institution.”

One of my favorite condo buildings on one of my favorite streets on the Hill has a newly available unit and it’s open Sunday, September 7 from 1-5 pm. Lovejoy lofts Unit 210 at 440 12th St NE, is around 1200 square feet of soaring ceilings, exposed ductwork, loads of light, oversized transoms, and a hip, loft-style ambiance. It has 2 bedrooms plus a den with a spacious kitchen and superb storage. Comes with assigned garage parking. The location is just steps from Lincoln Park and the H Street corridor, yet that block of 12th St is lovely and tranquil with classic Capitol Hill charm and good looks.
Listed at $529,900.
