We browsed an art show in Cocoa Beach Saturday afternoon, and then that evening attended the pre-race pasta dinner with over 1,000 other runners. There were two speakers at the dinner: Olympic gold medalist marathoner Joan Benoit something, and an astronaut who spoke about how running a marathon is like a space shuttle mission. During the dinner, most of the runners wore trophy shirts from previous marathons and/or triathalons. Gina later commented on the incredible amount of raw ego present in the room. Indeed, everyone seemed to be strutting.
