Kevin and Frank smiling just before we got into action.
Had a fun post-race conversation with Mike's wife Valerie, who says she actually reads my blog.
I spent my time at a corner with Steve Hess and Nick, a policeman, who did the official traffic directly. I did little more than clap and cheer, but I was enthusiastic.
No real hitches outside of an overly grumpy business owner, convinced he was losing customers, and a few drives unhappy they had to go another way. Wheaton's downtown traffic is complicated, so I felt their frustration, but little could be done about it.
I missed pictures of some colorful dressers, a few race walkers and the overall race scene.
Mike directs us to what we'll be doing and where.
Entirely unrelated are two new YouTube videos I have posted:
Laptop Blogging Blues - A poem I perform with images of my garage about the struggles of blogging with borrowed WiFi.
You Gotta Shake What Your Momma Gave You - Just a silly video of a baboon dancing at Brookfield Zoo lazy weekend.
