Mark Lundblad sent me this picture of the crew at the TN/VA state line (Troy, Eric, Rob, Anne and Rebekkah). It's all smiles during today's brief 7 mile day. What will tomorrow's 40 miler hold?

Starting day of the Tour de Virginia
It's a busy morning at the Grossman household. All manner of supplies (food, hydration packs, box of socks from Swiftwick, Builder bars, coffee, clothing, trekking poles, water purification systems, Gu's and other supplies from TheAidStation.com (thanks, Clark and Jeremy!)) are being loaded into our trusty VW Eurovan for the starting day of the Tour de Virginia. With temperatures expected in the upper 90's to low 100's today, it's going to be a steamy start to the Tour. Here's to a healthy tour for everyone involved - the runners and the crew. I hope you all stay hydrated, injury free, and experience more hi's than low's along the way. I (Robin) will be helping to provide updates these next 2 weeks. Eric will be back before too long with his engaging, thought provoking and very well written musings, but in the meantime, my posts will help shed some light on what's going down on this 550+ mile trek across Virginia. Relentless forward progress. Let's begin.
