Dulles Plane Pull

‘Round these parts tomorrow is something called the Dulles Plane Pull. It’s exactly what it sounds like: people at Dulles Airport trying to pull airplanes with ropes or rubber bands or some such thing.

There’s also a 5K race in which I’m involved. The race course is right on the runway. Yeah, they stop the planes for a few minutes and let idiots like me run around out there. I’m a little out of practice and have no intention of winning or anything like that; I just want to finish. Because if you don’t finish the race by a certain time you’re just finished.

I think your signal to be done is when you hear the engines starting up again.
