Received the handbook yesterday in the mail. Incredible story about how this relay evolved. Starting with just 88 people (not teams!), it now has 1000 teams. Bob Foote, the guy who started it, had it coincide with the full moon to allow for maximum light and each leg was EXACTLY 5 miles (OCD much?). He even calculated it to exactly 5 where there was a leg that landed in the middle of a 5 point intersection. So rather than end in the middle....the exchange would take place at the curb and the next runner would start to run in the middle of the intersection. His architectural background came in handy and then the math flowed...as he computated a way to interweave the teams (fast and slow).....based on 10K abilities. But, as we all know, there are liars out there. *sigh* Pretty cool stuff though...hope I didn't bore you too much...but be prepared for a whole lot more H2C talk in the coming month!
I...can't...wait! The anticipation is incredible....now for the actual event to live up to it...oh and of course the vacationing after. Oh yes. 1 month. I can do it!
