So, this upcoming weekend I'm artist Guest of Honor at the Twisted World convention in Valley Forge. (Yaay!)
Here's my schedule:
Art Show – Artist Guest of Honor
Artist Portfolio Review – Friday, 6-7pm
Q&A with Rodney Anonymous (Dead Milkmen), Ego Likeness, others – Friday, 10:30pm-11:30pm
Twisted Tete-a-Tete – Saturday, 11am-12pm
The New Magazine Assignment: Crowd Funding Your Art – Saturday, 12-1pm
Words & Images – Artists Collaborations – Saturday, 1:15pm-2:15pm
Promoting Your Circle – Saturday, 3:30-5pm
Photo Workshop: Create a Horror Novel Cover! – Sunday, 12:30pm-2pm
Now, I just noticed that the Philadelphia Love Run half marathon is Sunday morning at 8 am. Which gives me a bit of a dilemma. I could easily get up at 6:00 on Sunday, head into the city, run the half marathon at 8:00, finish by 10:00, make it back to the Hotel by 11:30 in heavy traffic, shower and do the 12:30 photo workshop, and make a giant day of it.
Or I could run 13 miles by myself on Friday morning and stay at the conference all weekend.
Upsides of doing the run is that I'D GET A MEDAL and it's much more fun to run with ten thousand people than all by yourself. Downsides are all the driving back and forth and the fact that the race costs $90 and I wouldn't really be able to hang around and enjoy the banana eating party at the end.
Upside to staying at the convention is I wouldn't be going to bed at 7:00.....
Did I mention it's not super fun to run 13 miles all by yourself?

how 'bout organizing a 13-mile run around the hotel area for 9am sunday morning and inviting all your fellow con-goers? i bet someone there would be willing to produce some sort of medal :)
this is a really good idea. we could get a twisted medal!
On the other hand, it sounds as if, should you choose the race, you'll have to compromise on the fun of both the race and the convention. Just another data point.
yeah ... you make a good data point. nothing lived to its full potential.
You are committed to the con, though. What if you should find yourself with some kind of sports-related injury and not be able to get back to the con, or unable get around the hotel if you do get back? I really like the idea of organizing something at the convention, and see who shows up. That could be a lot of fun, though a full 13 miles might scare folks off.
