It's the 40th annual Turkey Chase this morning


Battery Lane.  Currently you can only go one direction (Towards MD-355), the other direction is closed to vehicles.

It's Thanksgiving morning, and that means it is time to go for a pre-thanksgiving overload race.  This year the YMCA again sponsored the Turkey Chase 10k run and 2 mile walk/run.  This is the 40th annual run and it is back to being in-person.  You can also participate in some virtual evens now through the 28th. There is a virtual 10k, 5k, and 2 mile walk/run as well as a virtual 10 mile bike ride and 400 yard and 1 mile swim.

Old Georgetown Road and Lucas Lane

Northbound Old Georgetown Road in Bethesda has one lane closed.  Be careful if you are driving, runners sometimes pass other runners by going around the orange cones and entering the edge of the travel lane.

National Museum of African American History and Culture

 This past weekend I had the opportunity to visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall in Washington, DC. It was fairly crowded but well worth seeing.  Afterwards I took this late afternoon photo of the building with the leaves on the trees turning colors.
