Thanks Amanda. It was definately an amazing weekend to be in Washington DC! No one does patriotism like we do. After the race, I went to the Pentagon Memorial in the dark (it's open 24/7). In spite of the tragedy that occurred, It's absolutely beautiful when it's illuminated. There were lots family members milling about consoling each other and one of the runners who received a medal had placed it in the pool of one of the benches. As I was leaving, an Arlington firetruck pulled up and 5 firefighters got out and unceremoniously walked a wreath to the memorial and then just as quietly left. Very emotional weekend for everyone.
