Beth Clemmons : Jeez, I hope you're training for something. Or are you just doing sprints for fun?
Aaron Hotchner : No, I'm... I'm trying to do this triathlon in February, so...
Beth Clemmons : Oh, yeah. The FBI one. You're an agent.
Aaron Hotchner : Yeah, it is the FBI one.
Beth Clemmons : I'm not supposed to ask if you're an agent.
Aaron Hotchner : I work for the justice department.
Beth Clemmons : Yeah. I've seen you doing laps at the Y, too.
Aaron Hotchner : And you're training for surveillance?
Beth Clemmons : I am doing an MS triathlon. It's in January, but I'm not in as big a rush as you.
Aaron Hotchner : Well, I just have about 45 minutes a day, so, you know, between work and home and... It's hard.
Beth Clemmons : How's your biking going?
Aaron Hotchner : Uh, I don't know. My tires are inflated, I think.
Beth Clemmons : Well, you know, I am not the best cyclist, so, I was gonna ride this weekend, and I could use some tips, if you're not busy.
Aaron Hotchner : I just don't know my schedule.
Beth Clemmons : Yeah. Or we could just see each other out here or at the pool sometime.
Aaron Hotchner : But I should find out in the next couple of days, and I could call you.
Beth Clemmons : That'd be great. Ah, I have a card somewhere. Here. Yeah. If something changes. It could be fun. Or at the least, an adventure.
Aaron Hotchner : So, what made you think I was an agent?
Beth Clemmons : I saw the suit. What else could you be?
Beth Clemmons : So, are your tires pumped?
Aaron Hotchner : I hope so. So, you haven't done a lot of biking?
Beth Clemmons : No, not a ton.
Aaron Hotchner : But you're gonna do a triathlon?
Beth Clemmons : Go big or go home. That's what my dad always says.
Aaron Hotchner : Your dad sounds smart.
Beth Clemmons : He was. He passed away a few months ago.
Aaron Hotchner : I'm sorry. Is your mom still alive?
Beth Clemmons : Yeah, she's doing a lot better.
Aaron Hotchner : That's good. How are you doing?
Beth Clemmons : I'm hanging in there. So, where are we going?
Aaron Hotchner : I usually go up Connecticut and through Rock Creek Park and then back down 16th, but we don't have to do all that if you don't want to.
Beth Clemmons : No, let's do this. If we lose each other, we will meet back at Dupont Circle for coffee.
Aaron Hotchner : Lose each other? I thought we were gonna do this together.
Beth Clemmons : The chase is part of it.
