Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Yep, it's 4:00 AM. I got a whopping 3.5 hours of sleep after stuffing race goodie bags last night till midnight.

I'm up because I have to be downtown to register conference participants for the big event at 6:00 AM during their breakfast time before the academic sessions begin at 8:00, and then run to the race course and hand out goodie bags and register people there from 9:00 - 12:00.

Errands today include:

Finding 2 dozen flashlights
Picking up bagels for 500
Buying kiddie pools for water and drinks
Marking the race course with spray paint
Setting up the volunteer registration and assignments
Picking up a former Tour de France rider at the airport, getting him fitted for a bike and dropped off at his hotel.
A dinner cruise this evening in the Inner Harbor with course attendees and faculty for the surgical conference.

Up again at 4:00 AM tomorrow to get the race going. The 60 mile bike ride begins at 6:30 AM.

With any luck - I can grab a nap Sunday afternoon when it's all over. That is, until Monday morning when the surgical conference continues - for the next seven days.
