On Saturday, twenty-four thousand pals of mine and I ran up and down Monument Ave for a while. Wow – what an amazing turnout! What was truly impressive to me was how well-organized everything was. Starting with information packet pickup and ending with the distribution of food at the end of the race, things just ran like clockwork. I ran pretty well, too, my 50 minutes exactly time beating my expectations by a good 3 minutes or so. It’s not as impressive as Scott Wichmann’s recent feat but, hey, I’ll take it.
And speaking of well-organized, I dropped my son off at the Fairy Tale Ball at Theatre IV later on Saturday and man, talk about another well-organized event. Food and fun stuff was everywhere and, by all accounts I heard, a grand time was had by all.
I couldn’t make it to the Ball itself, as I had a date with a princess, a pea and 20 mattresses down at Swift Creek Mill. It was certainly a fun show but, until I gather my thoughts together more coherently, you’ll have to be content with Ms. Haubenstock’s review. It sounds like she had fun, too!
