I work right on Logan Circle, so the race goes right by. I usually rearrange my work schedule so I can ride in on the Saturday and hang out on the Parkway.
I don't remember it ever raining on the race (I could be wrong, I haven't been there for all of them). This year looks less promising.
And isn't it stupid that this is the race's third re-naming, all due to bank buyouts? (Core States, First Union, Wachovia.)
