A Map & A Marathon

October 30, 2011, Washington, DC: I love maps, as you can probably imagine. This morning, we discovered an incredible one that allowed us to track our friend as he ran throughout the city on this cold October morning of the Marine Corps Marathon. By looking up his name and entering his bib number, we saw a little blue man, a friend, running along the race route throughout our city and northern Virginia, as far south as Rosslyn, as far west as the reservoir beyond Georgetown. When he rounded the Capitol Reflecting Pool between miles 18 and 19, we were there waiting, clutching hot coffee, cheering him on.
