Instead of rain, the sun came out. What was supposed to be a yucky day was gorgeous. Windy but sunny. I picked up Jennifer and Susie from Sea-Tac, and we went to packet pickup for the Tenacious Ten, a 10K and 10-mile race put on by Oiselle. We walked around the area around University of Washington, misread the parking signs, and got a ticket. Oops.
The day got only wackier for a while after that. After a robbery downtown ended, a suspect shot two police officers, and the area near the ferry terminal was locked down. We had the craziest detour trying to get to the ferry terminal, and I impressed Susie with my mad clutch skills on the downtown hills. (Mikey has seen automatic cars roll backward on those hills, and I still managed not to roll back into a Prius that wouldn't get off my ass.)
