I parked about a mile away from mcguire's. I arrived at 8 am. If I do it again, I'll try to get there at 7:30 so I can get closer to the starting line. The crowds are a little overwhelming. But I was determined to just do it.

Glad you guys had fun...and congrats on completing the run! I'd love to get your insights on how early to get there, parking, etc. The huge crowd makes me shy away from it.

The McGuire's race was a blast. It was my first one! Funny attire and lots of sites to stare at. I guess my time will be posted on their web site soon. 15,000 racers.....WOW!

I don't know if any of you are interested in roller derby, but there will be a game tomorrow, February 4, at Skateland in Milton: Pensacola Roller Gurlz v. Emerald Coast Roller Derby. If you have any questions, I will be more than happy to answer them.

I think I might also do the McGuire's run this year. My sister is coming down from Tennessee to do it with some of her high school friends, so it'll be a great chance for a little sibling competition!

Looks like I probably won't make the walk tomorrow. We have had a ton of family stuff come up this weekend and may have to go out of town. I am really sorry and disappointed.

Looks like the gathering spot is the field house...is that the same as the gym? I don't know much about the campus.

DALLAS_ANNE posted this on my Sparkpage this morning. Just wanted to share. I certainly will tell my friends and family about it!

Sine you asked about my event - the organization that I run is called Hand Me Down Moms, and basically what we do is hold events or "swaps" where people bring all of the things that their family no longer needs, whether it's your old fat pants (which will hopefully be mine at the next swap!), dishes or furniture you don't need, kids clothes, toys, shoes...basically ANYTHING you don't want that is in useable condition - and trade it out for things that you CAN use. It's not item for item or anything, it's really easy and really simple. In fact, we would prefer that for every one thing you bring you take at least five, lol. It's really successful and we are having another one this Friday and Saturday at Pace Immanuel Baptist Church, so you are welcome to come! Tell your friends/kids/grandkids/cousins/neices/neph
ews/etc. There is always TONS of stuff! I personally haven't bought my kids ANYTHING aside from birthday presents since we started this organization, and I can't tell you how nice that is on the wallet, especially when you have a you baby, because they grow so fast that the clothes that they grow out of sometimes never get worn!

Here's our website if you want to check out times and stuff - www.handmedownmoms.com
