1/3 of the way done...

So we had a brief 'debate' in van 1, on whether we were 1/6 of the way to the coast or 1/3 after having completed our first round of duties in the race.

Distance- and leg-wise, we certainly would have to say 1/6 of the way finished, which turned out to be a bit depressing of a notion, seeing as most of us have been up for 16 hours, have run a pretty hard leg, and haven't had a square sit-down meal the whole day*.

Each one of us quickly agreed that we should consider ourselves 1/3 of the way to the coast, as we don't have to do any extra work before we pick things up at leg 13. Definitely a more optimistic way to look at things, even if it's less accurate.

On our way to the second van exchange, and hopefully a little shut-eye as well. We'll be stopping right by the Willamette river
