MOB! April 4th, 2009
We have stated before that the National Building Museum is one of our favorite places in DC not only for its ever so interesting exhibits and award winning gift shop but for its stunning grand hall. Today the NBM hosted the race packet pickup for the Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run. This was the first year that they held the pickup at the NBM and it was a pleasant change having to trek over to a hotel in Crystal City (and subsequently getting lost in the underground tunnels). The hall was very busy, and t-shirt hander outers were working at a frenetic pace but I was able to get in and grab my packet (and Lori’s and Mark’s and Annabelle’s) relatively quickly. I came back by about an hour later and there was a line literally wrapping the entire block so I dodged a bullet. Hopefully the organizers will be happy with how the NBM worked to host the event and keep it in DC instead of sending it back over the river.
Just wrapped up our carbo-loading dinner and am ready to go!
