Tim and I have been back to our Vampire Runs for the past week. The Vampire Run is one where you try to get through before the sun rises in the morning. There are always very interesting people out and about at that time. And the city looks and feels a bit different during the course of a Vampire Run. You tend to notice things that you would typically ignore. Like the fact that you see quite a few employees of Roanoke Memorial Hospital that actually leave their post, probably have to take the elevator down 14 floors, and the walk about 300 yards to have a cigarette. The hospital must not let them smoke on the property. How satisfying! That's how you take a 15 minute break! And there sure are a lot of ducks in the Roanoke River. AFLAC!
