I woke up yesterday morning easily without an alarm. It was like Christmas morning. Excitement and adrenaline were already pumping through my veins. Honestly I had been this excited since Jennifer first asked me if I wanted to do the Verizon Urban Challenge with her on Wednesday. When I saw how it closely resembled my favorite show, the Amazing Race, I just had to do it.
We took the lightrail downtown and then made our way to the Seattle Center, our launch point. We got there fairly early to allow for planning and strategy so we ended up being team 3. After we changed into our race t-shirts and pinned on our number we went to sit in the Seattle Centerhouse to study our clues (which I was surprised they gave us), plan out our route (we could go in any order we wanted), and figure out our phone (the HTC Incredible).
While strategizing for the challenge (I'm wearing the shirt), my hair didn't look that good later in the day. We had more pictures but forgot to email them before we turned in the phone. Oh well.
