{MR340 Race Update!}

Monday, April 25, 2011

Our road trip to Austin ended up getting rescheduled until next month, so Em and I drove to Waco on Thursday with three goals in mind.


1) Eat Lunch at Lolita's. (Em dreams of drinking their queso on a weekly basis).


2) Stop at Common Grounds for some Cowboy Coffee and ...


3) Spend the afternoon paddling on the Brazos River.


Did you know Em graduated from Baylor in 2003? She used to throw tortillas off of that suspension bridge and try and make them land on the concrete pillars. (Reason #583 why we're friends).


She also used to spend lots of time hanging with her Homies in Cameron Park.


Overall, we had a blast driving around Waco and paddling on the river. It was a nice break from the typical headwinds we face out at White Rock Lake, and I enjoyed hearing about Em's college days as we paddled around campus. Btw, this car shadow is quickly becoming one of my favorite things about our drive home.

We still have $2,480 to raise in order to cover the last of our race expenses, so if you'd like to make a donation we'll gladly put your name on our River Rocket for all to see as we paddle across the state of Missouri.


If you'd like to donate $100.00 or more we'll also add your company logo to our River Rocket and blog sidebar through the end of July.

Thanks for all of your support! Only 84 more days until our race ...
