Mile 1.5 - The stretch of canal from the 34th street bridge to Fletcher's
Boathouse is just swarmed with joggers. Because DC is full of people in the
armed services, young people in college and unabashed yuppies, keeping fit is real
big. Some of them chat on the cell phones as they jog, some bring their dogs
or lug babies in strollers and most are dressed in some sort of athletic gear.
The Capital Crescent Trail runs along the
towpath from Whitehurst freeway to about half a mile pass Fletcher's and since it's
paved, you can also see roller bladers.
Beefcake along the canal.
