Marine Corps Marathon 2016: near finish line in Arlington VA, Rosslyn

I got some footage of the Marine Corps Marathon Sunday, right after noon.  Marines would not allow the non-runners to get closer than about 1000 feet from the finish line near the Iwo Jima Memorial.

Clip 2:  It’s true, that the night before 9/11, I awoke at 1:30 AM (Minneapolis, CDT) from a dream where Washington had endured a nuclear detonation near Iwo Jima and the Arlington Towers, and where a mushroom cloud was darkening the area.  I said to myself, “glad this was only a dream”.  9/11 would start six hours later.

It was pretty hot, over 80 F.

A couple other stiils:
