Response to kimbutgar (Original post)

18. A year ago this week - rode the LA Marathon course at 4AM with 1000 other people.

It's called the Marathon Crash ride and started as a semi-legal bike race about 10 years ago. It's the one time you can ride across LA with no traffic. Loads of fun.

My wife and I started a tradition of riding it 8 years ago and it's become "our thing" because it happens near our anniversary. Last year, we did the ride, rode back on the subway (maskless), then had breakfast at a cafe while we watched the marathon pass by. Looking back, it was a little reckless to do that, but we didn't quite know what was going down.

The lock down hit right after that weekend. It was the last time we got to hang out in public that way.
