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.
