The Runner and I are hanging around eating bagels in the "orange" village — the racers are divided up by colors. Which means that there are a couple more giant areas here, also filled up with thousands of people waiting for their turn to run.
This place is surreal.
2:30 til our start time (10:10 ET).
If you want to track our progress, my bib number is 30629. The Runner has promised to stay with me.
