Day 1 began at ACS at 07:00. My colleague Cecilia, her husband Javier, Chlorine Institute President Frank Reiner, and my parents joined for the start of the journey. My parents wished me well and the rest of us took off north on 16th street. Javier ran the longest, completing 8.5 miles before heading home. I came across 2 lovely trails during the second half of the run and arrived in Laurel, MD around noon. After a shower, a healthy dinner, and a few minutes of Olympic coverage, it's time for an early night.

Tomorrow I plan to stop by UMBC and Community College of Baltimore County-Catonsville. Hopefully tomorrow's post will include a summary of successful school visits!
