Now that the summer season is in full swing, people are constantly looking for ways to get outdoors and exercise! Washington D.C., annually ranked as one of the healthiest cities in America, is the perfect place to get out and run. From 5Ks to four-milers, there’s no better place to break a sweat this summer!
