We arrived in Old Town at 9am and sized up the competition. Teams had some funny matching t-shirts like Defending Champs (they weren't) and Those Damn Train People (which I still don't quite get). Our shirts were made by Stephanie's friend and said Home Grown 91780 and our team name was born!

Once everyone arrived we received our clue packets and we were off! We had to figure out the clues and find the locations. Having grown up going to Old Town Pasadena quite often, I thought it would be pretty easy. I was SO wrong! It was really challenging but so much fun. And I really learned a lot. Did you know that The Container Store building was the original city hall? For a few of the questions we asked random people walking around Old Town so if you are ever in Pasadena and strange people in matching shirts ask you questions, be friendly please!

It took us almost three hours to complete the question and we did have a few wrong. We came in 17th place out of 40 teams so we were pretty proud. Our next RaceLA is this Sunday in Laguna Beach and I am sooooooo excited!
