Weekend on the Run

This weekend began with the “KORUS Festival” (Koreans in the U.S.) in downtown Annandale.  My wife’s family was out in force, along with thousands of other Korean-Americans in Fairfax County, to see the drummers, dancing and traditional costumes. 

In what can only be described as a sign of the Apocalypse, your truly was named the “Man of the Year” by the Korean-American Association of Greater Washington, D.C.  Seriously, I was very honored and was glad to see our alliance be recognized after 10 years of work together.

Saturday morning I was at James Madison High School for the annual “Warhawk 5K” which took us through the hills of Lakevale and back to JMHS.

Saturday afternoon I spoke at the “Green Jobs Action” day on behalf of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, which used an eco-friendly home in Fairfax County to speak about the benefits of “green jobs,” i.e. jobs created by consumers who are looking for sustainable building products and energy-efficient homes.

Then it was a brief stop at Draper Drive Park to see my daughter Eva play soccer, another brief stop to help a friend who was moving, a quick dash around my backyard with the lawnmower, a shower, and a quick jaunt over to GMU to see “Arts by George,” a music and arts festival featuring students at Mason.  They were awesome.

The evening concluded with a house party in the Eudora neighborhood of Vienna where about one hundred neighbors gathered to support the Democratic Presidential ticket.

This morning, I just got back from “Kit’s Miracle Mile” to benefit victims of head injuries, a cause now getting a lot of attention with our returning vets from Iraq and Afghanistan.  My personal miracle was finishing a 10K in under fifty minutes for a change.

I’m off to church in two minutes, then will be at “Dunn Loring” Days this afternoon.

Redskins-Cowboys at 4:15 pm today.  Cowboys and Romo favored by 11.  Are you kidding me??? 

Go Redskins!
