They had a blast. They said it was one of the best races they have seen.
I don't think they minded the rain so much. They kept saying "at least it wasn't HOT" :
Both my boys and my SU slept in a tent through the pouring down rain and Jordan (who is 11) said it was "AWESOME". They got some great pictures and came home with bags of "giveaway" stuff, and tons of stories about people they met and talked with. They didn't stop smiling until I had to wake them up this morning for school.
(For some reason, I only caught that one boy was going.)
Jason was on the phone with my brother when the race ended - remember, we have to listen to it on the radio because it's blacked out here - and he said "Ashley Judd is on the track, in a sundress, SOAKING WET! Is there a better way to end a race?!"
I'm glad they had fun, in spite of the downpours. Wouldn't you know - it doesn't rain the entire month, and then pours race weekend.
