Last year when I ran MCM, I remembered all the kind, kind souls who handed out food -- orange slices, sports beans, banana chunks, chocolate-chip cookies, and even full bottles of Evian water - to us hot, sweaty, and tired runners in the last miles.
I, of course, partook of them all.
So this year, I thought I'd repay the favor. Jeanne and I handed out gummy bears, Swedish fish, and dark-chocolate M&M's to runners at Miles 14, 15, 22, 23, and 24. Many were grateful, and one man even said, "Oh, I love you!" when grabbing the last of the M&M's from my out-stretched hand.
Here I am handing out gummy bears to runners at Mile 22 or so. Be sure to scroll down to see more photos and the back-story of my trip to D.C.
