To be one of the cool kids...

I realized during my run this evening that 4 of us on the team are really just that much more special than the other 8 of you. Teresa, Al, Lisa, and I will all, 3 times each during the course of the race, have the full complement of 11 teammates cheering us on as we either complete or start a leg. The rest of you poor bastards just have to suffer with your five van-mates. I sort of feel sad for you. You won't feel the glory that we will when we have over twice as many people cheering for us as you do. It's good to be a cool kid.

Well, at least in your case, you are more "special" than the rest of us - hence why I decided to put you in a position where you can get more encouragement from the team :-)

Lisa said...

We're very special kids.

Danielle, your jealousy is transparent and petty. We rock.

Danielle said...

Yes. I am so jealous that I assigned you those legs :-)

You know what, don't be snippy with us now, just because you didn't think about the consequences of the various places in the lineup when you wrote it. :)

Meanwhile, I am really thinking "Thank God only half the team has to observe me red faced and gasping for air as I run" :-)

This is true. I will miss out on that. Damn!
