Square Peg and Danger Man accompany Pokey for the first 9 miles, with frequent pauses to take pictures of murals in the Richmond Arts District. Pokey's knee problems increase, so he sends comrades on ahead and walks to the finish area, a bit past mile 16 of the course.http://zhurnaly.com/images/run/Richmond_Marathon_hookah_caterpillar_mural_2019-11-16.jpg
