and stare out the window and day dream.
Eventually we made it to our destination: the DC National Guard Armory, which is located right next to RFK Stadium, where the Redskins used to play and the DC United soccer team currently plays.
It was cool, crisp morning. We arrived before 10 am, when the doors were set to open, so we spent a little time outside.
In an attempt to occupy ourselves, we played on the stairs,
watched Airborne soldiers jump from above,
took pictures of our feet
and were entertained by a Drum and Fife band (corps?).
They look kind of
Once we were let inside the Armory, we picked up our race numbers,
long sleeved t-shirts
and $12 socks.
I hope they're comfy, otherwise, I'll be kind of mad for dropping $25 on two new pairs of socks. If they keep our feet warm, I suppose they'll be worth the $$.
I'm going to try my best to get some pictures before and after the race, but not during, like I kind of hoped. Security is really tight at this type of event and no cameras are allowed. Boo. Hopefully I'll be able to capture some of tomorrow's moments to share with you.
Wish us luck!
