Rock 'n Roll Marathon

Superior Olive plays for the runners and spectators

On June 4th, 2006, Blueprint and Superior Olive took the stage at mile 25 of the Rock 'n Roll Marathon in San Diego.  The Rock 'n Roll marathon is a 26 mile race, with different Rock bands set up at every mile for the enjoyment of runners and spectators.   Truly a grueling feat for the runners, all the live music no doubt gave them the extra energy they needed to finish the race.  It was also a grueling feat for the bands, as Superior Olive/blueprint had to arrive at the site well before dawn to prepare for the 8:00 am starting time.  They traded off sets, playing for a total of 6 1/2 hours. Then of course everybody has to tear down the equipment.  Tom took the brunt of it though, while playing for both bands!  He basically played non-stop for over 6 hours, taking only short breaks between sets.
