It all started very innocently. I opened my big mouth with an idea and it took on a life of its own and almost swallowed me whole. You may recall that I belong to a local running club. We have an online forum where we can post questions, ideas, etc and I asked if there were plans for us all to get together after the race to hang out.
The answer - Great question! We need a volunteer! (and that would be me and a couple other folks)
The plan was to meet with the logistics director of the race Friday afternoon when we picked up our packets. I got there a little early thinking I'd want to spend some time at the expo. Well, the "expo" was about 10 tables and at least 3 were related to cycling and rafting. Our expo extravaganza took all of 5 minutes so we sat in the lobby to wait for Mark, our club president who reached out to the race folks on our behalf. Mark didn't realize how long it would take to get to Shepherdstown so he was a few minutes late.
