YHC has been reading Chernow’s biography of Alexander Hamilton and wanted to honor the founding father with a route the entire length of his namesake road. Running with Lab Rat and Upchuck, YHC did not realize he would also get a musical today. Going under the first underpass we experienced “Under the Bridge” by the Chili Peppers and upon the second underpass “Under the Boardwalk” by the Drifters. There was also some Dark Side of the Moon (during the impromptu astronomy discussion) , Timberlake, and yes, Hanson.
On another note, it turns out there is a massive WDog headquarters on the other side of Broad St. That AO is taking off! It must be the t-shirts.
This may be episode one of YHC’s founding fathers running series.
