Race-day registration will be open from 6:30 to 7:30 a.m. at the park for $35 for adults and $25 for kids (cash only).

Nope. I don't have the necessary skills or ambitions and I have work I love doing, already. Plus, I'm already what my immigrant parents taught us was the most wonderful and powerful thing to be in this world: I'm a free American citizen. I'm always looking for good people to support, though!

Shannon and I will be working this event tomorrow, so if you see us (well be the good-looking ones with cameras strapped around our necks :-) ) be sure to say hello!

In fact, photos from yesterday's pre-registration event at Nevins are online at welcomeyouhome.org in the appropriate photo gallery.

Both my wife and I are veterans, who are looking forward to helping out tomorrow!
