I love dressing up in a costume for this race. Tree's daughter came up with the ideal of dressing up as the 3 Little Pigs, now how appropriate is that for a farmer's wife. I was totally up for that one. We decided to get pink sweat suits and ordered the nose,ears,tail of the pig off the Internet. Than Tree's niece decide to run with us, so we had to come up with a costume for her. It was to late to get another pig outfit ordered, so she ended up wearing Tree's hippie costume from last year.

The race didn't start till 9, but we new we needed to get there early, because it gets very crowded at this race. We met at the Kum and Go in Desoto at 7:15 and followed each other in to Des Moines. As we are getting off on the off ramp their is a long line of cars already. Last year we parked at Living History Farms parking lot, but this year we decided to park at the hotel across the street. Last year it literally took us at least 30 to 40 min to get out of the LHF parking lot. This year it took us 10 min.
