We walk on the canal in Georgetown starting from Fletcher’s Boat House.  It’s a gorgeous trail that gives great views of DC, VA, and MD, and makes the process of training just fly right by.

    We will definitely be at these official training walks and will stretch five minutes in case anyone gets lost or needs an extra minute to get there. However, if you know you’re coming please give us a heads up here in this comment box or through Contact us above. If we hear from you, we’ll wait on you! (For another minute or two. LOL)
