There's a runner coming... we think he might be British

Great job everyone! It's starting to seem like a distant memory now that I'm back at the old desk again but what a memory! This has to be my favourite quote from the relay - I must look or run more British than I thought, how else could they tell? Other memorable quotes include the guy who thought that our team "should be disqualified for being too young" and the other guy who asked if we could "slow it down a bit, we don't want to be the last team into Steamboat Springs", both on Shaun's 2nd leg when he was blowing the competition away.


















Thought I would get in on the despair.com pictures as well, I think this says it all more or less...

My favorite quote is Teresa going to Norma, the 50-something(?) runner from the Sunflower Striders who was running the same legs as her: "I'm gonna get you Norma."

I think my two favorite quotes (as of now, if I think of more I'm sure the list will expand) were the British quote, and when the van from Team 9 pulls up next to us at the Colorado/Wyoming border, and this girl gets out, comes up to our van and says, "You gotta see this picture. He's surrendering to the cows!"

My favorite was from Pete while running leg #21: "I OWN this!"
