Live Green!

Last night, me and my pissy mood attended the Live Green launch party. From the genius behind the DC vegan mecca Java Green, Live Green is a community you can join to get discounts at green businesses in the DC area. The $13 membership is worth it just for the savings on a Zipcar membership, if you're a car-sharing person like me. It's too soon to tell but I'm hoping this turns out to be a good resource for finding green products and services in the city. But I already get a free Java Green cookie, so I can't lose.
The party featured all vegan food, from Java Green's catering menu. I hope this opened the minds of some people in the *huge* crowd about how delicious and "normal" vegan food can be.

I am so jealous. I live just far enough away to not be able to enjoy DC on a regular basis. Wahhh!!!

I read your profile and I was like "umm, is she me?" with the exception that we live in different locales we have the same job (at the 30,000 ft level) and the same name.

It's been a long time since I've updated it b/c once I got back into running this spring I've had some trouble with my right knee and I have an MRI on Friday to see if I'm even allowed to run again. I'm signed up for the Army 10 Miler, and I'm still hoping I'll be able to do that. I ran a half marathon a couple of years ago, but now I've put on weight and gotten lazy.

We can definitely commiserate on running!
