Leah and I had an exciting long weekend of getting it done on the homefront and running into some famous people. We don't have any proof other than eye witness accounts, but we were excited.
Early on Saturday morning, Leah and her running buddy and life coach, Ann Woods Hawks, passed shoulder to shoulder with Laura Bush and her walking girlfriends on the National Mall. Leah apparently mustered the courage to say hello and got a smile in response. Luckily the secret service did not tackle her afterward.
My meeting was more personal and will probably will result in a lifelong friendship and business venture... I was meeting with a group from church at one of my favorite haunts on the Hill (Good Stuff Eatery) last night and ran into the proprietor and Top Chef finalist himself, Mr. Spike Mendelssohn. While pride told me to play it cool, I definitely wanted to say I had met him, so I introduced myself, shook his hand and thanked him for opening such a good restaurant. I think he really appreciated it as he nodded politely.
