Do you know the story of Sisyphus?
Oh for Christ's sake.
Just got a reminder from the CLE Marathon about the Health and Fitness Expo, which is also where you must pick up your bib number -- no bib number, no race.
The last two times I ran CLE (Half) the Expo was at the Convention Center downtown. I could walk there from work, or drive and park on the street.
This year it's at the I-X Center. I have to drive to Berea to get my bib number. That's not even the dumbest part -- the I-X Center is only accessible from the highway, and is surrounded by a parking lot the size of an airfield.
Which I am expected to pay $8 to get into.
Okay. Four days to go. Bitching about how fucking stupid the Cleveland Marathon is has officially begun. Please be impressed by how I have waited this long.
3 Days to Go.
Distance: 4 miles
Route: Neighborhood Loop
