Walk to the wife to Metro so she could get to the start of the marathon on time.

Warm down:

Waited around and waited for the wife to finish the marathon.

Huge post race area for sponsors and teams. A few tents for pay for everyone else which were located a half a mile from the finish line. The prebagged post race food at the finish was nice.
