We just finished an inspiring briefing from Bill including advice on how to call ahead to order sandwiches mid-route. Mike seems to be fully ambulatory but there has been a lot of chatter about the weak ankle. Lara seems to be biding her time with regard to the inevitable coup attempt but has been building her base of support from newcomers to the group.
The course immediately crosses a large highway, so the start procedures is for a race official to hit the crosswalk button and then wait for the light to turn. The Boston Marathon it is not.

We’re T-minus 5o minutes until Mike starts us off on the course to victory!
