We have officially completed our Christmas shopping

So we switched gears (what a surprise!) and ended up going to the George West Storyfest 5k.  They had a Red Wagon Parade, for God’s sake. Who could resist that?

Friday night, Mo says, “This race seems really small. I bet there’s no swag.”

Saturday morning (for a mere $20 day of race registration) we find ourselves with:

• Four donuts. Six cups of coffee.

• Neon green race T-shirt

• Handsome finisher’s medal

• 2012 datebook

•  1 water bottle

• 3 koozies  (2 red, 1 green)

• 1 screwdriver (convertible from phillips to straight edge)

• 1 hand sanitzer encased in carrier with clip

•  travel toothpaste, toothbrush and floss

•  large red water bottle

• 1 stick-on desk calendar

• 1 envelope opener

• 1 chewy s’more bar

• 3 pencils

• 2 crappy pens and one fabulous pen (this is mo’s appraisal)

• 1 refrigerator sticker from the chamber of commerce

• 1 piece of peppermint candy

• 1 small notebook pad with an American flag on front

Oh, and they had a race. Super-accurate 5k with accurate mile markers, 2 water stations, the high school cheerleaders and a loop through the cemetery. Did I mention I love this race?

And they had Frito Pie after the race. Lordy, what a state …
