Deal Or No Deal - The Other Marathon

There were reportedly 30,000 runners who took to the streets of Nashville at 7 a.m. this morning for the 8th annual Country Music Marathon and Half-Marathon.



On the other side of town at Opry Mills a slow walk marathon was underway as early as 5 a.m. when thousands lined up to answered the casting call for a shot at one million smackaroos on "Deal Or No Deal".











Good luck to all!

I'm disappointed in myself for not being better prepared with having my camera gear on my person - like an an extra battery! And I missed an opportunity to have my picture taken with Snowbird (the weather mascot)... Darn!

But this was pretty cool:

A. I am sooo glad I didn't accidentally go to Opry Mills today.

B. I always kick myself for not having enough camera gear with me, too.

C. Those geese crossing the parking lot are adorable!!

Holy crap! A friend of mine was thinking about going to try to get on DOND and wanted me to go with, but we ended up being too lazy. THANK GOD! We never would have made it even close if we would have sauntered in there around 10 a.m. For once, my laziness paid off!!
