2008 DC Idiotarod

A large field of fearless athletes gathered for the 2008 DC Idiotarod this past Saturday . About noon, the sky opened with a deluge that could have turned a well-oiled shopping cart into a rusting duck. Gale-force winds blew timid souls all the way to Potomac Yard. But Idiotarod participants came out in high-spirits for an event that seemed like a high-school parade that collapsed into chaos, a highly distributed Halloween Party, an over-the-top Hash, and a mini-Marine Corps Marathon, all rolled into one. All in all, crazy good fun; much better than a dog race.
