For the third year in a row, beautiful weather greeted runners at the Army Ten-Miler. The race is always spectacular, from its scenic course to its military showmanship. However, I wonder how many runners were challenged to get to the starting line on time.
What are the odds that both I-66 and Metro’s Orange Line would be closed at the same time, the morning that 30,000 runners were trying to get to the Pentagon? Metro was running bus shuttles on its Orange Line, but service was quite slow. Luckily, the Army Ten-Miler starts multiple waves of runners and late arriving participants could jump into the back of the pack.
Let us know any of your race stories or travel challenges getting to or from the Pentagon.
