Jogging about 3 miles a day used to be part of my daily routine. I’ve been pretty slack for the past year or so, but want to get back on it. I have had trouble figuring out a good loop starting in Shaw that has relatively little traffic, scenic or interesting things to view, and few stops and starts. When I lived in the Adams Morgan/Dupont area, I would cut over to Rock Creek Park and incorporate a segment of its trail into my routine. I’ll still do that on my long runs, but I think Rock Creek is too far from my house to incorporate into my 3 milers. Any suggestions on loops starting in Shaw?
