Grant never goes anywhere without a video camera in his hand. I'm pretty sure he sleeps with his hand on the button. He loves to rock out to reggae music and he's hell on wheels on the road despite running maybe 15 miles a week (damn him).
Mary, who is Gran't wife, drinks a ridiculous amount of water and has to pee every 10 minutes. She must have a wooden leg because she's thin as a rail but she eat more than all of us. She flies, literally, the minute her feet hit the pavement.
Cait is easily the most chill runner/person in the group. Currently in grad school, she had very little time to train this summer. But it was all good. She just slid in and did her thing. She pouts in many of her photos and yet she's one of the more positive people I know. Hmmm.
Scott, a married dad of 3 in his 50s, runs like he's in his 30s. Translation: he's lightening fast. I was in awe of him the whole time. He also knows EVERYBODY. Literally. Every stop, he'd run into someone that he knew. People would flag him down from afar to say "hi" and catch up. It was nuts.
Will, our trusty driver (also Cait's twin brother), is the master organizer. He kept us all in line and knew exactly when the other runners would be coming and going right down to the second. It was eerie. He also doesn't eat bread because it makes him tired, so he had several lettuce and meat sandwiches throughout the day. I'm pretty sure he doesn't sleep either, but I don't know because I do.
Adam has the best legs of the crew. Not race legs, mind you. His actual legs. Even from afar, people would comment on how great his legs were. He also has the neatest and most organized apartment of anyone I have ever met. His mom taught him really, REALLY, well. For the record, he prefers 2 ply toilet paper.
It doesn't matter what kind of runner you are. If you want to have an adventure with a bunch of people who share the same goals (in this case having a freakin' blast), then you should put this race on your bucket list. It's that good.
Rock on, team. I love ya!
