(not sure what the exact time was - just estimating)

Good times at the FAC Fall Classic with T.Rex and PJ. I was a late fill-in and already had plans to see my long-time favourite band on Friday night, which meant that I had to drive directly to the 4:00am start immediately after the show. Fortunately my teammates had everything already organized and ready to go, so as soon as I was able to find them in the dark, we were able to quickly sort our gear bags and hop into a boat for the paddle start.

Having had the good fortune to often race with much stronger navigators then me (Phatty, Leanimal, Scott P), I normally don't take the lead role, and T.Rex and PJ were very patient with me and a few errors I made that cost us a fair bit of time. I take a little comfort in the fact that I recovered quickly on each one (and the fact that it sounds as though no teams ran a clean race), but the time lost cost us the opportunity to attempt the advanced course. After a very long 75km bike section, I don't think any of us were too concerned... :)

Good fun with great people in the beautiful Fall colours - thanks to T.Rex and PJ for inviting me along, and to Denise for coordinating the awesome accommodations!

Logs Rocks & Steel - great day up at the Frost Centre. Raced well - pretty sure I had 4th place locked, but got a flat in the last 13km of the final bike section. Quickly switched tubes and began pumping like mad, but noticed that the tire wasn't holding air - finally realized that my spare tube had a 2mm hole in it. Officially pooched, but not willing to accept back-to-back DNF's, so I hoofed it back to the finish line. Frustrating way to end a hammerfest of a day, but good fun all the same.

Congrats to Relentless who dropped me at the second TA to claim the 3rd place spot, Leanimal who took the solo women's division, and to Bash & Bent who won the coed 2's, despite their assertions that they were "just there for fun and not to try to win" :) Great to see so many familar faces and to hang out post-race by the bonfire. Thanks to Bob for a fun day!
