The latest from Metro:
Metro encourages race participants to use a SmarTrip card or a plastic cover to protect their farecard. In previous years, race participants have had their farecards demagnitized while participating in the race after they became covered in sweat.
So, this was posted on Metro’s website, in preparation for tomorrow’s Army 10 Miler. I don’t even want to know where people are putting their paper metro cards while they run. Or even why you’d want to run with it — so you can hop on at Smithsonian and take it back to the Pentagon? Granted, I’m not a fan of the baggage check stuff because it’s usually a fiasco, but still…I mean, are they running with their house keys, too?
