This is one of the crazy days every few years that we have people basically camping in our front yard. Tents and all. Yes, we live within 1.5 blocks of an Apple store, and we live the direction the line runs.
I ran home from work Tuesday night and the very first guy was there, all set up.
By Wednesday morning, when I ran to work, there were about 4, complete with a tent.
And Wednesday morning, they were already making the sidewalk impassable. I do most of my run to work on the streets, but there's one section of about .4 miles that is on a trail, one section of about .3 miles in a parking lot (I run along a big strip mall before getting to our office tower), and I run about .4 on the sidewalk right in our neighborhood.
I skipped the running commute yesterday, the whole taper mileage cut thing, so I didn't really get to do a progress check.
This morning, I drove to boot camp and it was crazy. Yes, crazy at 5:15 a.m.
Police directing traffic, no parking spots to be found, line down the block, people jaywalking -- thank goodness I'd heard voices as I was putting on my tennis shoes in our foyer, or I could have been in my usual pre-boot-camp haze and I probably would have mowed down four of them before I finished eating my granola bar.
The news said there are over 300 people right now, and it's still just over 3 hours until the store opens.
Crazy! I want to get one (my iphone is old), but I'm waiting until after the vacation extravaganza.
