Friday afternoon, looking at the course profiles in the race bible:
(discussion of how Van 2 got all the hillier parts)
Me: Wow, we have way more area under our curve than Van 1!
(4 nerds in unison): Why didn't we compute the integral!?
Kurt: Screw the integral, why did nobody do an FFT?
Early Saturday morning (or was it late Friday night? Honestly I can't remember) in the throes of massive sleep deprivation, the "try to hack me, my IP address is 127.0.0.1" story came up and we started reading stories of IRC pwnage on our iPhones. For about 30 minutes straight. All of us were in tears from laughing so hard (well, at least I was).
For reasons I can't explain, many of the teams' vans were decorated with some sort of sexual theme. Therefore, it was refreshing to see the G-Nomes team van decorated with what looked like a graph from a mass spectrometer. Nerd pride FTW!
The running was fun too. Highlights for me: running into Anacortes at 1am along the bridge/breakwater with distant lightning flashing above the mountains; the long, long climb on my 3rd leg and then the fast, fun downhill to the exchange; escaping the heat in the shade of the van; cheering everyone on from the van, and getting cheers from my team and other teams.
Can't wait for next year!
