It just gets more and more fun! I was in van 2 this year and runner 12, and the country was just as amazing as last year. In our van was Carol, Jamie Lamb, Kim Weaver, Amy Taylor, Loralee Reary, and me. There is just something about being in a car for 30+ hours with your girlfriends, no sleep, running... what us Moms will do to get a break! At some point you become delirious from lack of sleep and everything is funny, I think that's what gets you through. We were looking for our rest stop about midnight on Friday and we couldn't find the school so we decided to go to the next exchange and get some sleep. We arrived, got our blankets and pillows and tried to get some sleep on the damp grass before we had to get up at 2:15 to start our next run. Saturday we stayed over night at Stein Erikson Lodge for some much needed sleep before coming home to greet the kiddos and hubby. Kim and I got into bed and were talking and I think that we both just fell asleep in mid conversation, we were so tired after being up for 39 hours. Another awesome year with an awesome team! Did I mention it was Awesome?
