I got up at 4:30am on Sunday morning to volunteer at the GW Parkway Classic. After a night full of anxiety dreams (I dreamt that I fell back to sleep and missed the event and that Kathy took my t-shirt away. I also dreamt that I couldn’t count to 55 and kept putting the wrong number of people on the buses LOL), I headed over to Pentagon City. My task? To help load the approximately 1000 runners on the buses in Arlington to get them to the race start at Mount Vernon. It was completely dark out when we started.
I can’t remember the last time I saw the sun rise and this particular day was no exception LOL. It was grey and rainy, so it still seemed pretty dark even towards the end.
The runners were, generally speaking, in a good mood and cooperative. This wouldn’t be the DC area if we didn’t have a few Type A personalities *roll eyes*, but overall, it went really smoothly. Great job, Pacers! It was just starting to rain when we finished, so I headed home. Beer Geek snapped a quick picture of me and then I jumped on the treadmill.
