Twas the day before the Mojo Loco

Twas the day before the Mojo Loco and all through the house... not a creature was stirring, not even the moose.  Well as you can tell the magical elves and reindeer wanted to join in on the fun that would soon be had. They plopped theirselves into the bag that was intended to go in the car (and ultimately to the funnest kennel on the planet). Elf Kendall and Reindeer Moki somehow escaped... knowing that a little girl would be sad if they didn't appear the next day. Elf Edward clung strong until the pups were dropped off... then he magically reappeared in the car for the long drive to Daytona Beach, FL.  Needless to say, I was happy for the company... He tucked himself into the handle on the passenger-side dash, and bopped to the music and podcasts that were blared for hours on end.

I finally arrived and was greeted with hugs from Maddy and Susan at the hotel we would share. The three of us met Chris Russell at Carrabba's Italian Grill for carbo-loading pre-MojoLoco. We shared happy running conversation as well as a good meal. We laughed over sausages and got to know each other better thanks to Susan's interviewing skills. Then Chris entertained us by showing Susan how to stretch her problem area in the foyer of the restaurant. Anticipation lingered as we awaited the next day...
