DC Rally to Restore Sanity.

This morning started off with a trip to the airport before the sun was even up!  Casey and I hit the road to Baltimore to pick up his parents, who are in town visiting us for the whole week!  It is such a nice treat to have them here.  We are secretly hoping they will fall in love with it and want to move here.  :)

We got some brunch and hit up the farmer’s market in Old Town, before setting out on our day’s adventures.  Casey and his mom are both big fans of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, so we braved the crowds to head up to the mall to be part of the Rally to Restore Sanity.  We assumed it would be a mad house, but I wasn’t really prepared for just how crazy it would be.  This was my first big DC event, and it made me appreciate just how cool it is to live in a place where important things are happening.

The minute our train pulled into the station, we knew we were in for a wild ride.  I have honestly never seen that many people crammed into one spot.  It was just a never-ending wall of bodies.  To be honest, it made me a little nervous.  I’m not usually claustrophobic, but for some reason being packed in like that underground made me feel a little anxious.

Eventually we made our way out into daylight.  There was so much energy in the crowd – it felt spectacular.

IMG_2555 (640x462)

It was such a perfect day to be out on the Mall and enjoying the sunshine.  It is finally VEST season – my favorite time of year.  Casey makes so much fun of me for it, but I have a thing for puffy vests.  I have three of them.  :)

IMG_2556 (480x640)

We got down to the Mall area where the rally was taking place and found ourselves lost in a giant sea of people.

IMG_2559 (640x465)

This is about as close as we could get – we could see the stage and hear the speakers and musicians, but we were still probably two city blocks away.

IMG_2560 (640x472)

IMG_2561 (640x495)

Even if we couldn’t see much of the rally itself, it was fun to be part of something big.  Not to mention all the beautiful scenery we had to enjoy!

IMG_2562 (640x478)

It is so fun having Tina and Eddie here!

IMG_2563 (476x640)

All sorts of people came out for the rally – crazy costumes (I think Halloween played a big role in that too), all sorts of funny signs (my favorite was “Fear the McRib”), and one guy even brought a piano with him!

IMG_2564 (468x640)

Some people definitely went all out to deliver their messages.

IMG_2568 (640x470)

We walked around to the side of the stage to get a better view where we could see a bit more, and from there we could actually see Colbert taking to the crowd.

IMG_2567 (640x479)

Eventually we decided the crowds were a bit insane, and we set off to
find a less packed-in area to do some sightseeing.

IMG_2570 (640x474)

We made our way over to the Capitol so that we could walk all around it.  Tina and Eddie haven’t been here in a really long time, and have never really done much sightseeing or exploring – it’s fun to get to do it with them.

IMG_2573 (473x640)

Gorgeous colors of fall everywhere.  What a wonderful city backdrop.

IMG_2576 (640x358)

I know I talk about it all the time, but this city just never gets old.

IMG_2577 (640x480)

Jeggings!  :)

IMG_2579 (481x640)

The view of the rally from the Capitol was AWESOME. You could see just how far the crowd stretched into the distance.

IMG_2583 (640x477)

I’m really interested to hear how many people they think came out for today’s events – I have to guess it was hundreds of thousands. 

IMG_2585 (640x479)

It was a little hard for me to get around, but I’m rocking a new fancy knee brace, and just took the walking nice and sloooooow.  Hope my company wasn’t annoyed to have to hang with the slow poke all day.

IMG_2589 (479x640)

Even as the rally neared the end, there were people camped out everywhere you can imagine.  Check out the steps of the Archives!

IMG_2594 (640x472)

People even started climbing statues and trees to get a better view.  Pretty bold if you ask me!

IMG_2595 (443x640)

The rest of our afternoon was spent battling metros, and eventually making our way back to Old Town for a delicious Thai dinner by the water.  It was fun to participate in our first big DC event.  I can only imagine what it is like to be here for the Inauguration and other big political events!  Looking forward to many more events in our new city, and a wonderful weekend of sightseeing and exploring with my in-laws!

(Wrote this post last night and as I went to push publish, my battery died – grrrr.  Off to cheer at the marathon!)

You were very brave to have even attempted to go down to the rally yesterday. We drove to Falls Church to visit a running store yesterday around 1030 and there were TONS of people walking to the Metro station nearest our house and then we drove along side an orange line Metro in transit that had people packed in like sardines.
Too.Many.People.

Have fun cheering on the MCM runners this morning!

Oh, man, I wish I could have been there to see Stewart & Colbert’s rallies (even if I probably would have had to stand at a distance as well)!

There were also a bunch of satellite rallies going on around the country, apparently. That is a TON of people making a statement maintaining sanity in the political climate. I can’t wait to see some of the highlights when the Daily Show & Colbert Report play on Monday night.

Anyway, the scenery looks awesome as well. :D Glad you guys had a blast!

So glad you could be at this event … I would have loved to be there! What a beautiful day for the event.
Glad your body could handle it … hope you aren’t too exhausted and that you can handle all the walking you will need to do today to cheer at the marathon. Have fun!
Guess tomorrow will be a rest day.

I’ve lived in the DC area for close to eight years now and I only ever complain about the city. Reading your stories and how enthusiastic you are about your new home gives me a whole new appreciation for this area. I love the food and the stories on your blog, but I especially love that you’ve been able to get me excited about a place I thought I was done with.

I wish you the best recovery! I know knee injuries are frustrating, but once recovery really starts, once you can start moving the knee, it will surprise you how fast your body responds. You are more resilient than you could ever imagine.

I was there too! My boyfriend and I were around 4th street-pretty close up! I would recommend YouTube-ing Stewart’s speech at the end, he ended on a much more serious note that may be of interest. I’m sad we were only here for the weekend and didn’t have much time to do sightseeing….dupont circle was so cute too!

We watched this on TV and it was the most sane of all the rallies I’ve ever seen. Jon and Stephen did a great job putting it on. I also love DC; we visit it every time we visit my sister in Annapolis. You’ll love going to the fireworks on the Mall on the Fourth of July. We went in 2009 and got into the annual PBS show in front of the Capitol. Just be prepared for huge crowds!

Good luck on the healing!

We were there too, and it was insane. My only complaint is that if they actually got Cat Stevens to sing in public, they should have let him sing at least a full song!

As far as the inauguration… it was worse. At one point, while I was waiting in a crowd, I realized that I was being squeezed so tightly between other people, that I could probably let my knees buckle without falling at all. I tried it, and even lifted my legs. No movement at all.

Neat that you got to be part of that! I definitely would have been freaked out in the crowds, especially underground, too! Enjoy Casey’s parents.

Looks like a great time! The weather looked amazing too (I’m loving it here). Have a great time at the marathon. Cheering is just as important as running it! I know there’s been a couple races that I may not have finished as strong as I did if it wasn’t for the wonderful spectators screaming their heads off!! :)

Yes, vest season is the best! I never understand when people say they don’t get what a vest is for. Maybe they’ve never lived in a place where the climate can be too warm for a coat but too cold to skip wearing an additional layer?

I’m such a party pooper but I avoided downtown like the plauge on Saturday because of the crowds. The Tea Party rally was packed enough – I could only imagine what this rally was like! I am feeling like I missed out a bit now that I see your pictures though :).

Love your photos of the rally- especially from the capitol building. I saw people climbing onto porta potties… talk about bold!

Wish we could have been there with you guys!
Glad you ditched the crutches. I think I lasted about two days with them following my surgery.
Have fun with Tina and Eddie this week!

I just blogged about being at the rally, too. I agree with you, I don’t think DC could ever get old. There are way too many things to discover, even if you live there.

Oh, and I was able to check out Cafe Green and Sticky Fingers. Have you been to Sticky Fingers? It’s a fabulous vegan bakery. My review will be up later this week.

Oh that first picture from the Metro makes me claustrophobic just looking at it. I hate being underground and stuck!

I love love love love pests of all puff-levels. They complete an outfit like nothing else.

Funny! My husband and I were there too! It was crazy insane. We stayed for the whole thing. I felt closed in trying to walk out of the area after it was done. It was like no one was moving! But definitely a great experience…gorgeous day!
