SD – WV – OH – NH – CT – next up, Maryland.  6th consecutive weekend marathoning, running state 42 Saturday 🙂

Hotel stayed in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor – GREAT location.  Day’s first stop, the National Aquarium.  HUGE building hugging the Chesapeake Bay – 5 levels of wonder.  Black tip reef to Shark Alley, well done.  Time constrained, unfortunately had to cut out early – still needed to fit in lunch & bib pick-up downtown.

Long jot down Pratt, opted to walk by Yankee great Babe Ruth’s Birthplace Museum before righting myself toward the city’s two premier sports stadiums, Camden Yards & Ravens M&T Bank Stadium.

Much of downtown Baltimore is uniquely designed in the region’s locally harvested red brick – including tomorrow’s mile 25 paver path to the Finish.  Welcomed BIG at Camden Yards: “This Land is Birdland”.  Tomorrow’s marathon wraps Orioles Stadium – finishing down pedestrian Eutaw Street, connecting Camden Yards to the city’s NFL home.

Snapped a pic of the marathon ‘Finish Line’ – classy, Baltimore.

WOW whatta day – whole lotta, whole lotta before a 26.2.  To anyone who thinks of Baltimore only as the city jungle portrayed during last year’s riots – think again.  Much to see & do!

Early start tomorrow a.m. [MARATHON DAY] then hitting the highway – dinner plans with Aunt & my Virginia-based cousins (2 hours away in Martinsburg WV).  Livin’ life with no regrets – FAAANNTASTIC!
