Day -1

June 14, 2014

We had an organizational meeting today: runners, medical crew, cooking team… and pizza :). The last relaxing evening before the burst of intensity. Ray was still an hour and a half away on his way to New York, Sara went to the hospital with a skin rash, and Sarvagata missed the meeting. Therefore, here are the remanding 11 runners on the picture.
