Giving Flavor to the MCM
Just a few weeks after the birth of Kenny Kramm’s youngest daughter in the early 90s, she began suffering epileptic seizures. As part of her recovery, she was required to take multiple daily doses of medication but refused due to the bad taste. Kenny and his father, a pharmacist, spent evenings sweetening the medicine with flavorings from candy manufacturers.
Keep it Simple and Stay Close
When runners wake up on event morning, there's still miles to go. So minimize the stress. Streamline the movement plan. Stay close to the action and within the system of care provided by the MCM. Shuttles will run throughout the pre-MCM hours from National Harbor and Crystal City to Runners Village at the Pentagon North Parking Lot.
