    Tina, I am so jealous of your active and adventurous friends off to run overnight together!!!

    BTW, I don’t know how you only bought two yogurt pretzels (they are so good) and the energy blocks are my favorite travel snack. I bring them on my cruises and they barely survive the airplane!

    Looking forward to hearing and seeing pictures of your trip!


    Laura May 17, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    Aww, I love all the sayings on the vans! Have fun!

    Fine. I’ll get a twitter account just so I can follow you, ladies =) good luck and have a blast!


    Irina @ Chocolatea Time May 17, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    Are those energy chunks I spy there?? I’m officially obsessed with the carob spirulina flavor and always eat a chunk or two before heading out on a run. They’re called energy chunks for a reason, right? Good luck with the relay race!


    Sabrina May 17, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    I love your check boxes on teh van, what a great idea! I’m pretty interested to know about safety during this event, do you have police escorts? I did the St. Jude relay a couple of years ago and we have police and RVs to keep us safe.
