I'm in DC...

... and ready to run a marathon. We left Omaha about 10:15 this morning and flew to Detroit. We literally ran through the Detroit airport from gate C forty-something to gate A-68. I actually mean ran. Like with our bags strapped to us through hallways, on moving walk ways, dodging poor slow moving pedestrians, up and down escalators, etc. It was quite an adventure. Only the second time I have ever had to do something like that. We came skidding to a stop in front of our gate just in time and we weren't the last ones there!

We had a slightly bumpy flight into Washington D.C., picked up our giant bag and headed to the hotel. We figured out the metro system and headed back out into the city to pick up our packet. Public transit is pretty sweet. It takes forever but it is worth it as a visitor. We picked up our packets and our "mock neck" long sleeve t-shirts and grabbed a quick Subway sandwich. Check out the store that was in the gigantic mall where the Subway was...



Yeah, that totally says, "The Art of Shaving". If we hadn't both been tired, Mr KT would probably have wanted to scope it out. Sounds like something he would like, huh?

Now, back at the hotel and resting up for tomorrow. Just looking to get this party started.

Kate,
You are faster than we are. Mark, Don, Rosemaire & I were in Detroit last Saturday and missed our connection because we couldn't run fast enough.
Have a great time. Remember, It's about the experience and you don't have to over do it. Just have fun. LOVE JULIE

You guys rock. I was tracking you all morning (except for when I went to church and then Eric brought up Patrick and was letting people know how he was doing.) Hope you are both doing OK after the morning. Can't wait to hear the details.
Julie & Mark

Awesome! Adriane and I tracked you all morning yesterday! Hopefully you are enjoying the feelings in your legs today.

Can't wait for the full report KT!

I'm really curious about this "art of shaving" store. I didn't know there was enough enough shaving paraphernalia to warrant a whole store. I may have to check it out too.. haha.
