The 2011 Virginia-Highland Summerfest 5K and Art Festival was today, Saturday, June 4th. Susan always likes this festival and I tolerate it. This time I made sure to smile a lot and not mope around like my usual self. Read on for details of my almost second unselfish act. Disclaimer: My wife reads these before I publish them.
Susan and I and our friend Eileen arrived for the race at around 7:10am. We were early and got a great parking spot. We headed to the registration area, after a brief stop at the port-a-potties. Registration was already buzzing. We picked up our numbers and shirts, stood around for a few minutes, and took some pictures. The shirts are light cotton with the logo in yellow and teal text. The starting line was only 100 yards away.

After the race I rinsed the sweat off of myself with a 2 gallon jug of soapy water I brought from home. After a quick change in my mobile dressing room (the car) we headed to the awards presentation just a few blocks away. If I could summarize the Virginia-Highland Summerfest 5K race in just one word it would have to be - disappointing. Good for them!

After Green's, our last stop was Podium Multisport on Zonolite Place. We picked up a few things, petted the store mascot, and chatted with Matt and his girlfriend. Matt did the fitting for my QR CD0.1 tri-bike last year.
