"The muscles, for sure. They start to cramp up and lock up on you. About 5 AM, my calves started to cramp up on me and I've been fighting them a little bit. They been really great here, though. They have five massage therapists who are volunteering their time through the whole thing, so they've been keeping all of us going."
