Great WIOL season. I'm gonna need a total rock-block count to see where you are in the history of rock-blocks. I know you are up there somewhere. You might be the first/next person able to pass Benjamin (17 I think). I suspect Finley might be the guy to eventually do it:)

Okay, gotta ask: what are rock-blocks?

Rock blocks are what COC gives out after each WIOL season to the top 3 runners for the season and the championship. They are rectangular blocks made of marble with a plaque signifying the place, category, and year.
I'm pretty sure I've got 14 rock-blocks, but I still have 3 more years to overtake Ben.

Okay, got it! So you get one for top three for the season and another for the championship ... (otherwise you--and Ben--wouldn't have enough years to earn all those). Cool. Maybe you can build a little rock wall when you're done. ;-)

Don't be rock-hungry! Challenge thyself, do some long advanced at the tougher venues
