I won...

...third place in Razz's "Global Warming, My Ass*" 6.66 mile virtual race... (although according to his site my bizarro world evil nemisis ESEthan actually won)

I got to admit I feel kind of jaded... I was looking forward to the day when I was finally fast enough to enter a race and win some hardware (I was thinking like 3rd place in my age group in a local 5k or something)... I was going to write a blog post about it; talking about how I was a rising champion, slowly moving from the middle of the pack to the front of the middle of the pack.

Instead my first racing sucess comes in a "virtual" (read: not real) race in which most of the people running weren't even trying very hard... which makes the fact that I placed almost kind of embarassing.

Oh well, at least I got a real race this weekend although with 36,000 people signed up there's zero chance of me placing... In fact I could be in the top 10% of the field and still have 3000 people finishing in front of me... which is good! Because that ultimately means that the person I'm truely competing against is the one that matters the most: Myself (plus my buddy Symons of course)
