Marathon Opening Ceremonies
Okay, I never do this sort of thing, but yesterday evening was the Marathon opening ceremonies. The kick off involved a "parade of nations", followed by fireworks. The first "nation" highlighted was the City of New York, as represented by its running clubs, so, well, I agreed to represent. It was fun, and also the worlds' shortest parade ever. The entire route consisted of the length of the finish line grandstand. Still, it was a great photo-op, including a rapprochement between rival running clubs.
And, as a personal first, I made the news!!
