The boy, hubby and I drove to Rancho Cordova. The boy and I are doing the American River Half Marathon 5k! Hubby is doing the walk/run his first half marathon. Hubby took the day off so we could get an early start. We picked the boy up from school at 12:30pm. We left at 1:30 and arrived in Sacramento to pick up our race packet and tee-shirt at 4:00. When we came out of the running store that had the race packets, we had a parking ticket on our car. Hubby parked the car over the line. Really? I am happy to help Sacramento with its budgetary problems. Then we headed to Rancho Cordova where we are spending the night. The boy went for a swim in the pool before we drove to where the park the race is so we could check it out and to see how long it will take us to get there tomorrow. We are spending 2 nights here because after the race we are going to a birthday party for Mom up here after the game. We didn't want to drive the long way home after the party. We are on the other side of the river where the race start. There is a foot bridge that goes over to the other side. Then we had dinner at a Thai place that is near our hotel. It was pretty good. Now we are relaxing a bit in our room before we go to bed early because we have to get up at the crack of dawn tomorrow!
