Marine Corps Marathon


When we got back home from the burg this morning, we decided to take a walk down towards the Key Bridge to see the marathoners from the Marine Corps Marathon taking place today. It was so crowded! They had something called the "finish festival" going on where they were giving away free stuff and had live bands playing. We walked up to the Iwo Jima memorial where the finish line was to try to see some people cross, but it got so crowded (and too close to Redskins kickoff) that we turned around and went back home. Near the memorial though, they had a massage tent for the runners. The line was sooo long!
