Thankfully, this is a sports column and not a style one. To either my benefit or my detriment or somewhere in between, I’m of the belief that a solid white t-shirt and jeans will suffice for most engagements.

BAA representative Nick Puleo says that, "130 members of the National Guard will be marching, along with other members of the military who qualified as runners. But anyone who didn't qualify and does not have a number, will not be authorized to be on the course." More
