Qi is a speed queen!!!

Time stamp 5:20am.... we're ready to rock and roll but we're missing one person. We call Amer...he just woke up. Great--he's runner number 1. Van 1 decides to leave without him so we can make the 8am start. We'll figure out the first runner when we get there. Ninety minutes later we cruise to the starting line thanks to Qi's stellar highway maneuvers. Van 2 arrives shortly after--with Amer.

Qi is a speed queen? Van 2 waited an extra 20 minutes for Amer before setting off, and I drove hard to try to catch up with van 1. The fact that we arrived only about five minutes after van 1 speaks for itself.
