I left my hotel room this morning for a quick jaunt around the Capitol Mall area. Had to stop twice to fix my shoelaces. Thankfully.
By the time I arrived to the Capitol area, a motorcade streamed by me lead by 6-8 motorcycles leading a lone runner in a red shirt and big yellow number on his chest:
Once the runner passed, I asked two fellows – “Do you know what race this is?” “I think it’s the Marine Corps Marathon.”
Turns out this guy was the leader at ~mile 19 and ended up wining the race today. A pretty cool moment. Glad I still have problems tying my shoelaces properly.
