If I'm skipping the opening day of softball season, you know it must be important. Since Ed and I probably will never be participants in The Amazing Race, we're doing the next best thing: the Urban Dare.
The Urban Dare is a one-day mini Amazing Race. A couple of years ago, we did the Urban Challenge, which has since gone the way of the Dodo bird. Teams of 2 solve clues to find checkpoints where they must perform dares. Walking or using public transportation, we should finish in less than 4 hours -- the winners are expected to finish in about 3. The picture at left shows the winners of last year's race in San Francisco.
Can't wait. It's going to be as close as I ever get to traveling the world -- even if it is only Washington, D.C.
