for those in the DC area, the Rock n Roll full marathon and half marathon are in town this weekend! This means road closures! I got an email about it and thought it might be some good info for anyone driving around town this weekend. if i come into the city at all, it will be to bike. Also, if any of my buddies (real life, twitter, or athletic group peoples) are participating, lemme know and i will try and get out to the race route with some ridiculous sign to cheer you on!
