    Just wanted to congratulate all the finishers of todays Half and Full Marathons in Washington DC. (Also wanted to pat my own back in the process for participating in my first full)

    Minus the Metro headache that started the whole thing off, I think it was a great time!

    Congrats - you ran right near my house, but I was probably sleeping when you went by...lol.

    What happened with the Metro?

    One of the metro trains en route to RFK had a door jam and they had to unload all the passengers at Smithsonian and reload them onto other trains. Problem is: these trains were chock-full of people already, so it was a lot like Tokyo at rush hour. (With a metro system that doesn't work properly...)

    I know a lot of people missed their corrals and started late (myself included) - still was a good time with amazing weather.

    Already gotta start thinking about the next one: DC Marine Corps Marathon, October 2012!!
