A fair trade on a race course: a gallon of water for a can of budweiser

As we started and finished our third and final legs of the relay, the only thought in mind was that this was the final one we'd have to run! And although our legs burned, joints ached, and we weren't entirely sure we could even start running again, let along run 4-7 miles, that thought got us through.

Those who had finished happily sated themselves on everything from chocolate and graham crackers to beer successfully bartered from a nearby team that had run out of water. Having plenty ourselves, we thought it was an eminently reasonable swap.
