I drove the kids to DeeDee's on Saturday so we could celebrate Hank and Mark's birthdays. Thankfully, they were spending the night with her since we knew Sunday was going to be a long day.
We got home from the Eastern Shore around 11, and I was snoring by 11:30. When the alarm went off at 3, I seriously considered rolling over and going back to sleep. But I knew I'd completely regret it so I dragged myself out of bed.
We were on the road by 4:15 and found our way to the race by 6:45. Parking was a breeze. Got my packet in no time flat, and then we saw they were letting people park on the grassy area even closer to the start so Bill moved the car. I walked through the wet grass to get stuff from the car and then again to cross the field to use the potty. My socks were wet before I even started the race. I should have changed them but figured I'd be ok. Big mistake because I'm sporting some big ol' blisters on both feet now. Lesson learned!
Me about to head up to the starting area
Losing my skirt again. No complaints though. I would have been toast without my own water!
