Grandpa Races

My dad chose to visit us this weekend so he could run in the Army Ten Miler. It as a huge race, 30,000 runners. We took the metro in to the National Air and Space Museum where the race goes down the street towards the capital and then turns around at the National Museum of American Indian and goes back to the 395 and over the river to end at the Pentagon.

So were about at the 6 mile mark. Here is my dad (in the blue) running by. Looking good! This was still in the first 1,000 runners going by. The metro unfortunately was on the other side of the street. We were figuring we could just cross the street between runners and head back to the Pentagon, but we underestimated how thick 30,000 runners are. There was no getting across the street, especially with a stroller. We had to walk down the street to go around the race.
So we missed my dad at the finish line, but here he is at the Pentagon with his finishers coin.
