THE OC MARATHON EXPERIENCE: “COMICS FIRST”
It’s Saturday morning… or should I say “Race Day Eve”?
My bags are packed, my runner’s OCD is in full swing and I’m ready to head off to Newport Beach for the OC Marathon. By the way, organizers are expecting a record turnout for the race (22,000 runners pounding the pavement for the various events).
I can’t wait to get down there and dive right into the mayhem. But before I hit the road I must feed one of my other passions.
Today is the 2014 installment of “Free Comic Book Day.” If you’re a fan o’ comic books or haven’t picked one up since you were a kid (you can also use your own kids as an excuse to let your inner geek out for a stroll), be sure to check out the link to the Free Comic Book Day website. It’ll let you know all about it and a way to locate participating comic book stores near you.
I can’t wait to read the free “Future’s End” primer from DC Comics as well as several of the offerings from Marvel and various other independent publishers. It’ll give me something to read tonight when I realize that I’m not really going to sleep before tomorrow’s race.
Okay, time to get my geek on and then motor to the OC Marathon expo. More to come later today!
To the Batcave… and Run on!
