    OMG you guys this is so exciting! If all 24 of you show up with a bag of fruit, it will be a real feast! And Tim will be so happy to feel all the So Cal love. He seems to really enjoy group runs, so anyone here into running, definitely dress for it so you can join him on the beach path after his talk. :D SEE YOU SOON!!!

      Thank you Anji! Would it be OK if I brought my two kids, 7 and 4? They are good girls and will be quiet. If I can't bring them it would be hard for me to make this.

      I see no problems with that. I'm sure they'll love the park and the weather is supposed to be quite nice. :) bring a blanket to sit on!
