It’s Saturday April 7, 2018 at 7:45 A. M. and there is a very irritating noise that has just awakened us all from a dead sleep. Early this morning we finally made it to the hotel and got a very little bit of shut eye. Then we were up, showered, grabbed some hotel style continental breakfast and we were out into the cold, wet morning driving to Wiseman Park in Lynchburg for same day packet pick up.
There was a slight hiccup as we explained to the nice elderly volunteer that while we understand that a valid ID is required for packet pick up, a 13 year old usually doesn’t have a driver’s licence. Someone stepped over to help and we escaped with our stuff in hand. Then one of those moments of pure genius struck, we had about 1 hour and 20 minutes before the race started and a nice warm car close by with blankets and pillows. But now that noise is going off again… oh yeah, Daniel and I have to go run now. Good thing I set multiple alarms, 13 minutes until the gun.
