So, I recently signed up to be a member of the Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) and was scheduled to run a race today with said group. This race is called "Pat's Run" and is honor of Pat Tillman, of which the main event is held in his home state of Arizona. Then they have "shadow runs" in cities across the country, one of course being DC. Well, that race was today, and it go cancelled due to flooding! The US Park Police wouldn't let us run because of said water issues...so being hardcore military folk the we are, we decided to go for a run in the rain anyways!
Anyways, thanks to IAVA I was able to register for the race for free (which should be run at a later date, though I hope it doesn't conflict with a race I already have planned), and some free swag. So in addition to the race shirt, I also scored IAVA shirt and hat (and I REALLY love the fact that both of those items were made in the good ole USA). :)
