Meet The Google Leftovers Team!

Everytime I tell people I am running a 199 mile relay with 11 other people, every reaction is similar to: A look of confusion and a question similar to "How many miles again?" or "What?"

Well, let me clarify:

12 runners, 2 drivers and 2 volunteers from Google (and friends of Google) have signed up for the 'California's Longest Party' to run as 1 team named the Google Leftovers. Why the name? Well, there are many people from Google who are running this and we pulled together last minute to form the team with the 'leftover' people.

The run from Calistoga to Santa Cruz, CA will be manned by:

Kirsten Yee
Bruce Li
Nagendra Modadugu
Dan Liu

Misha Zatsman
Courtney Bowman
An Zhu
Heather Johnson
Cindy Chin
David Bronner
Eva Woo
Dave Hansen
Lauren Miskelly
Cynthia Boedihardjo
Ruth Wang
Sy Na
We start at 12pm (PDT) on Saturday, May 2nd so follow us on this blog for stories along the way of this exciting adventure!
