What is this you may wonder? It is an official Rosie Ruiz Fan Club magnetic van tag! What is that? Many years ago, our then Captain Erica came up with the idea of tagging vans with a little symbol of our team. Since then many teams have adopted this practice and by the end of the race our vans can end up with over a dozen tags each.
With just over a week to go the team's supplies are nearly all in! These van tags arrived recently. Next in line to show up are some lights that will (I hope) let us figure out which runner on the road at night is ours. So far none of the 8 tricks we have tried have worked. The first year we had no idea how difficult it would be to distinguish runners at night! Since then we have been on a never ending quest to find a solution.
