Michelle Obama jumps rope at Columbia Heights school

First Lady Michelle Obama was in Columbia Heights today, attending an event for the President's Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition at Bell Multicultural High School at 16th and Irving. The council works to teach kids to be healthier -- check out the awesome photo! Originally both Obamas were supposed to attend the event, but after the whole McChrystal thing, the President decided not to go.

Of course, this isn't the first time either Obama was in the neighborhood: Michelle visited the Upper Cardozo Health Center about this time last year, both Obamas visited the Capital City Public Charter School, and the President worked out at the Washington Sports Club awhile ago.

I wonder if Michelle went anywhere afterwards? Maybe the Obama-recommended Pete's Apizza?
