cherry blossom expo

Had you walked by the National Building Museum today you would've thought you saw a crowd of people waiting in line for concert tickets or the opening of Star Wars in the 70s. But no. This around the block, doubled-up line was to pick-up racing bibs for the Cherry Blossom 10 miler tomorrow. I could not believe it - it was so crowded! At least it was sunny and beautiful outside, so the line wasn't that bad. I picked up a nice new pair of running shorts on sale for 10 bucks (originally 30), which was sweet. I also got a "Hooah" pin from the Army station, also cool.
I'll be going to bed in the not-so-distant future, since the race is at 7:40AM downtown.
12,000 people, 10 miles - it's going to be great! More about it tomorrow.
