So months ago my friend Dave told me I should run MCM with Team Chris. With Wineglass at the beginning of October and the fact that I was only going to do 1 marathon #oneanddone but he told me there was a 10k too. I went back to work and signed right up.
Fast forward to the last weekend of October I hopped a plane to DC. Well to Baltimore and then a rental car to DC. I never thought about DC Friday afternoon traffic so it took FOOOORRREEEEEVVVVEEEERRRRR to get to the hotel. I didn't go to the expo just to the hotel to get ready for dinner.
We all went to a Team dinner at a local restaurant, went to the finish line area which is at the Arlington Cemetery and then came back to the hotel to hang out. I went to bed kind of early because I knew I wanted to get up super early hop on the metro and get to the expo before it opened. I heard lots of horror stories on the crowds.
It is good I did because I was there 45 min before the doors opened and the line was already HUNDREDS of people long. However I did get in and out pretty quick. When I left the line was all the way back to the metro station.
Saturday was a nice relaxing day. The hotel was covered in Team Chris banners and decorations. I just hung out with the rest of the group and the weather was perfect. That night we had a pasta dinner at the hotel restaurant and head to bed. My friend Jen was getting dropped off by her boyfriend and she was running the 10k with me the next day. Plus I had to take my usual outfit pictures right?
