Thanks to Jon Stewart’s Rally to Restore Insanity and Stephen Colber’ts March to Keep Fear Alive, the crowds on the DC metro system made packet pickup for the MCM10k a complete nightmare. Adding to the mayhem were the Homecoming weekend celebrations for the University of Maryland and Howard University and thousands of exuberant Halloweeners.
Enter all the crazies in the tri-state area.
We ended up walking past 3 stops until we found a station we could even get into, let alone a train with space for us to board it. Need a visual?
Yeah, it was kind of like that. Ok, I may be exaggerating, but seriously? Not by much.
Here’s to hoping that tomorrow’s second trek into our nation’s capitol goes a bit more smoothly. If I can just get to the start line, the rest is in the bag.
