St. Patrick's Day 8K Bib Assignment

Volunteer Activity #2 of 2014:  I took another day off work to volunteer with the St. Patrick's Day 8K race by handing out runner bibs.  The volunteer email told me to be at Pacers in Logan Circle at 11 AM.  I totally overestimated how long it would take me to get there so I was at the location 40 minutes early.  The store didn't open until 11 so I walked around the neighborhood.  I went into CVS and browsed the magazine and also went into Whole Foods. 

I went into the store when it opened and waited for the volunteer coordinator.  In previous races, they'd print out the race numbers and your name and you'd have to go and tell the person what your name/number was and they'd give you a bib with your number and name printed on it.  For this race, the procedure was different: you got assigned a number when you came in to pick up your bib and t-shirt.  There were probably about 150 people that came through between 11 AM and 5 PM.  Not too bad for a Friday. 

Dad picked me up at the Metro after volunteering and I stayed at my parents' house for dinner and hung out.  I also went to see my cousin and aunt who are leaving tomorrow to go back to Taiwan.

For a right-before-bed snack, I ate some leftover cheesecake from Jessie's birthday.  RJ hopped on the bed to silently judge me.
