Saturday morning, Tara Mace got an unwelcome phone call. Her partner for the Wild Hog Canoe Race, the 31st Annual adventure to benefit Levy Association for Retarded Citizens (LARC) couldn't make it.
Tara was stuck - where to find a partner at 6 a.m. on race day? She called her mom.
Theresa McFarland answered her daughter's call and agreed to give it a whirl.
"I hung up the phone and thought, 'I don't have any idea what I'm doing,'" she said.
"I kind of twisted her arm," Mace admitted.
