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!!

That was followed by an evening of barbecue and sides at Blue Smoke with Vicki.  Now it's time to focus on the carbs!!
