Who would have ever thought I would include politics and personal interests in the same post. Yesterday I ran the National Press Club 5k in downtown Washington in 25:40, another personal best for me. However the excitement came with the large teabagger protest right in Freedom Plaza on Pennsylvania Ave. The crowd was cooperative in staying out of the road but it was one of those "only in Washington" moments where you can get up and run a race and there is a sideshow going on around you.
When the race director was advising us to be aware of the "other people celebrating the first amendment" it was comical to see him do it with a straight face. Talk about liberal main stream media at its finest.
