This past Sunday was a glorious fall day. I headed downtown to cheer on a friend who was running in the Marine Corps Marathon. I was overwhelmed by the turnout — there, 30,000 people were running around my beautiful city, past the Potomac, in front of the Watergate, then the Kennedy Center, following on past the Lincoln Memorial. The air was crisp and spirits were high. And it was exhilarating to see so many thousand determined people following their dream towards the finish line.
