the Great Urban Race

Last weekend was girls weekend with my mom, sister, and grandma. On Saturday Jen, mom, and I did The Great Urban Race, which is basically a giant scavenger hunt in Minneapolis. We walked over 9 miles in 4 hours, 45 minutes before we finished. We were the last official team to finish - however, ten teams did not finish, and 3 teams had penalties which put their time after ours. It was really fun - except for the last hour and a half when we were tired and ready to be done. :-)

We had to figure out the clues, and then find the location in Minneapolis.

We had to take pictures to prove that we found what we were looking for - in this clue, we figured out that we were supposed to go to First Ave and find the Black Eyed Peas star.

This clue we were supposed to make a pyramid in front of the upside down pyramid
sculpture on Nicolette Ave.
We decided if we did it again we would get a few teams together and race against each other since we know we'd never win!! The winning team finished in 1:47!!
