It's time to get ready for the first track meet of the 2012 season. I'm the recorder, or Scribe as I like to call it. I write down every runner's time in every race. It gets hectic but I enjoy it.

This is my third season, so I'm pretty good at knowing what to bring along. I just packed my tote bag with:

collapsible camp stool
8 pencils
2 pens
binder clips
directions to the meet
cell phone
granola bar
small "essentials" bag from my purse, containing Advil, inhaler, lip balm, Swiss Army knife and band-aids. Covers just about every emergency.

It's going to be cold this evening, so it's time to eat up, layer up and get out of here!

Do you have your flannel lined jeans on? That's my first item when I go.
Enjoy and best wishes!

Impressive Barb! You must have been a girl scout, right?!

Mimi, I had leggings on underneath heavy sweatpants.

Noreen, I flunked Girl Scouts, but I am a mom of 2 Boy Scouts.
