2019-02-17 - Middle Lap of the GWBM

~7.4 mi @ ~14.2 min/mi

"Fancy meeting you here!" Danger Man greets Roadkill at mile 7.6 of the George Washington Birthday Marathon, and they run a lap of the course together on a chilly Sunday. We salute Derek who, for more than a decade, provides music for runners (cf 2017-02-19 - GW Birthday Marathon etc). Fusillades of gunfire from a nearby range echo across fields of corn stubble. A tow truck rescues vehicles stuck in roadside mud.

"No weapons allowed? Then I can't enter!" Danger Man controls his deadly hands as we pass the Goddard Geophysical and Astronomical Observatory, its fences covered with warning signs. Earlier conversation mentions Chuck Norris, not (yet!) a Marathon Maniac. Roadkill lectures on electromagnetic theory when the course goes past a NASA antenna research facility. After surviving close to 2 hours of that, the remainder of the race is easy for Danger Man!
