No Sleep for the Orange Line
That's the new motto for us on the Green Line. We're certain the Orange Line is running so fast out of spite, to deny us sleep, and we're on deck waiting to return the favor. At this point,2:30 am and exactly halfway through the race, we are running a full hour ahead of our pre-race projections! The Green Line had a few hours sleep in a nice hotel room: our fortunes have certainly risen compared to the first year! Chris is about to kick off our 2nd legs and Joe is coping with the prospect of his impending 600 foot gain over 9 miles... Stay tuned. For now, all are healthy and if not exactly happy, at least not outwardly hostile.
