1. Big news: I've joined the ranks of FitFluential. I think this means I'm a real blogger now. I promise I won't get a big head, but I'm relying on you, dear reader, to tell me if I get too big for my britches.
2. I'm in one of my favorite cities ever this week for work. I'm in Washington, D.C., for Capitol Hill visits. This trip is all work, no play, but I did get a chance to walk past some of my favorite site on my way to the hill this morning.
3. Many moons ago, I won my very first award in journalism for a profile I wrote of Aaron Schock. This was back when I was in college and he had just been elected to the Illinois House of Representatives. My trip to DC would have been incomplete without a photo op of the U.S. Rep 10 years later. Win.
