We soon discovered one of the unique things about our van- the window wipers didn't work!! So we drove for 3 hours on the freeway in the pouring rain without them- no big deal! Just a quick note about the van- I spent countless hours trying to find one to rent without success so I ended up "renting" one from a friend of a friend who owns a daycare. The passenger window doesn't roll down, there was about 1.5 boxes worth of cheerios inside when we got it (yes, we cleaned it first), the battery died once (while I was running!)- but otherwise it was perfect! And it was WAY better than not having a van.
|Van 1 at the starting line! Jody, Cory, Sarah, Pauline, Dawn and Mary Beth.|
|Van 2 in Bellingham! Steve, Will, Matt, Paul, Amy, me.|
|Our super groovy van|
|Happy Days! Get it? It will be fun.|
|It's official- van 2 is running!!|
|Steve rocking his leg!|
|There I go!|
|Sarah looks really excited for my arrival! Her expression cracks me up.|
|That was pure joy -ready to pass off that sweaty bracelet!|
shower pill since I was feeling really gross and sweaty. Those wipes are amazing- I felt 100% better afterwards so I ate my sandwich and then Will and I decided to take a nap in the gym. Worst nap ever by the way, I did not sleep a wink. There were people talking, slamming doors every 10 seconds and blowing up/deflating air beds the entire 2 1/2 hours we laid there. But we laid there and rested anyways until we got word that van 1 would be finishing up around 12:30am.
|Faking it. There was no real sleep.|
|What the heck? We parked next to this "toilet"- oh Honey Bucket where are you???|
