12 down. 24 to go.

The sun has set and we have climbed out of the heat of Napa Valley toward the chill of midnight San Francisco. Much attention to the pace chart has yielded some excelllent time projections and we are within 2mins of predicted pace after 6 hours of running. However we are 7mins down on DSE and 1.5mins on Stanford.

Much attention to the van rental company has not yieleded good resilts. They arrived with a 7 seater van hoping it would be an adquate standin for the expected 15 seater. We got cosy with the promise that a larger van would be delivered later. We shared Android phones to call the company and used many a burner number to get our calls answered as it appeard that the companies outgoing phone system prevented them making any return calls or answering any calls orriginating from a previously used number. Regardless, we sourced a second van! With enough seats! We were happy! And Cosy. But in the end the van vacated - we have ended up just cosy - and looking forward to some free van rentals.

So all 12 people on the team have put in some work. Solid performances all around and the race has settled down a little. However, things can go bump in the night - so stay turned for some early morning updates.
