A DC Christmas Running Tradition

by - Wednesday, December 16, 2015

Every year, I try to make sure I get in at least one run past the Bishop's House in DC. It's my own personal version of a holiday lights run.


This one house gets so decked out with Christmas decorations and lights, it draws all kinds of crowds as people come check out the lights.

I was planning to do my run past the Bishop's House on Monday evening, but the forecast called for rain, so I scooted out the door a little earlier than planned, hoping that because the skies were overcast, the lights would come on earlier than normal.

Unfortunately, that wasn't the case.


When I ran by, it was too bright outside for the lights to be on, but I still got to scope out some of the crazy decorations. (I should note, I edited all the pictures to make them brighter for this post. It definitely wasn't that light outside when I did this run).


I ended up doing about a three mile run and just when I got back home it started pouring. It made me glad that I squeezed the run in earlier than planned even though I didn't get to see the house all lit up. I guess I'll have to try to swing by on another night time run to see the lights.
