Van 2 just completed our first set of legs. The competition is tight between Google1 and Pants Optional, the only other team to start with us. We took over from van 1 with a 2-minute lead. Blake led off leg 7 tackling a tough uphill climb and managed to gain about a minute in the process. Next up Ben L cruised through his leg, impeded only by those pesky traffic lights.
The remaining set of legs were short and fast. Brent ran his 2.9 miles hard, the distance being practically a sprint for him. Larry took an extended leg of 4 miles managing a solid time despite running a marathon less than a week earlier. Andrew tested his injured foot out on an abbreviated 3-mile leg and it proved sound. Jeff closed out leg 12's 3.3-mile distance, not letting the challenger's anchor gain any ground. Van 1 takes over with a 3-minute lead. Still anyone's race though.
