Best Laid Plans

In my life I have made many mistakes, normally, an eraser was all it took to correct them, but this time it looks like stupidity might be the solution.  Well, maybe not stupidity, but sheer grit and determination.  I signed up for a Du on Sunday, but I requested Saturday off because I had looked at the date from last year instead of this year.  Now, since the race starts at 7 and my shift starts at 10.  There is a possibility that if I destroy the course; I might be able to do both.  The other part is begging my boss to allow me to show up late, so I can squeeze in a shower as well.  My goal time would me anywhere from 2-2 1/2 hours, so it is possible, but getting from race to work while maintaining professional grooming standards might be difficult.  Well. Packet pick-up is later today, so I will have to check out what type of course and parking I will be able to use and also call around to see if any of my co-workers near the area would allow a quick shower if I decide to attempt this.

Quick edit:
I have decided to do the Du...  I start at 7:10 and will hopefully be showered and dress for work at 11.
