It might take a gifted animator (and possibly some hallucinogens) to turn that phrase into images - nevertheless, great description.
How did I not see you this weekend? I swear I was there for like 90% of the meet.
No idea - I don't recall spotting you either. I was a bit later than I intended, arriving close to 11:30am, but then I was around for probably ~45 minutes getting read to run and again after running until a little after 3pm.
