Did he also tell you that everyone had to finish each drink before the next began? He held our group to that. . .not that it was a bad thing. I know!! lol There was a water fountain just steps away where many of us had gotten our last minute slurps of water there before the race. But, when you've just finished a steamy, sweaty, sauna-heat race and there's a CM directly in front of you standing behind an ice tub full of water, soft drinks, and fruit, it's hard to resist. Besides, in all races I've run (which are legion), the goodies at the finish line are always gratis. Without thinking, I scooped up a bottle of water and began thirstily chugging it down. "Two dollars, sir," the man said cheerily. After that, I refilled my bottle at the fountain while awaiting luvvwl at the Pelican Point tram stop just steps away. Welcome aboard!! And, thanks! We'll try to do more editing so as not to incur the wrath of the Edit Line gods. . .
