I knew my neighborhood had room for me when I witnessed participants in the Idiotarod.
This year's race is on the 26th. I swear, if the weather stayed THIS warm and this shopping cart was only $20, instead of $120...I would so be participating. I figure I could throw the girls in the cart, and get two other crazy friends to come along for the ride. Costumes would mostly be either a superhero theme or a princess theme...either one would be perfect.
I just asked my DH if he would let me buy a shopping cart for the race and he said NO without even considering it for one second, what UP with that? I didn't ask him to run the race WITH ME!!!???
My only concern is that I fear all checkpoints along the route are bars and there might be quite a bit of drinking involved, which may make this event slightly inappropriate for children...but maybe instead of participating in the race, I will check out a few check points along the way, camera in hand.
