Mom

Staff was friendly and I thought the event was fun. I do want to say that I was disappointed in the organization of the packet pickup table. Having registered my family of four for this race prior to October 15th, I was sad to see that everyone in my family got their T-shirts except for Mommy. Question then? Can I get my small T-shirt please?
