Next Sunday, August 30, I'm going to the Yankee with the boys. When I go with the boys we usually go early and tailgate in one of the outdoor lots. Game time next Sunday is 1:00 so the tentative plan is to go early and enjoy some breakfast tailgating.
As runners, I'm sure you can see where this is going...that's right, I'm thinking of running to the Stadium and meeting my friends in the lot. Sounds crazy right? Not really, I live no more than 8 miles from the stadium. I would run over the GWB, through Washington Heights on Broadway, down 155th St. and over the Macoombs Dam Bridge to the Stadium.
There is one problem..no showers. Yes, I can give my buddies a change of clothes to take with them in the car but I'll still be pretty sweaty and smelly without a shower.
I really want to do this, I just need suggestions for overcoming the "ick factor." Please chime in.
