"I mean, who throws a shoe? Honestly!"

--Austin Powers to Random Task

"I mean, who chip times a 5K? Honestly?"

--me disgruntled after learning my chip did not read, therefore I am not in official results

Grrrrr! Somehow I had a chip malfunction. Me poor chip did not get read....

So, I just have some imaginary hardware from coming in 2nd in my age group yesterday behind DaisyDuc, which is quite a bummer since the hardware was a stuffed animal (the race was for a nature center) and I really would have liked to give it to my niece.

So, I am unofficially an invisible age group 2nd place holder :) Hey, that's still kinda fun. Only 11 peeps in my AG, but still!

I mean, REALLY? Chip time a 5K with around 100 people in the race????????

Sigh. Oh well.

I have something new brewing up my sleeve....it's a surprise though, but I'm going to really work on this little surprise. Perhaps I will disclose it ahead of time. Perhaps I will not. :)

Congrats to all my IMFL brothers and sisters! You guys are freaking ROCK STARS. I can't wait to read the reports. So. JEALOUS. Will hopefully be there in '08...I want to know what flat is like and what TriSaraTops could do in IM #2! So feed my race report addiction, please!

Congrats on your 2nd place even if it wasn't recorded!

DaisyDuc said...

I checked the results today and was going to tell you that you should have got a second place award...totally a bummer!

At least a 2nd place finish is one way to show you are back speedy!!!

I had the same thing happen to me, they duplicated my number. placed 2nd and nice hardware given out. I felt so ripped.

2 of 11..that's still top 20 percentile in your AG. Nice.

I had that happen once where the chip didn't read the time correctly. I approached the race director and they pulled the age group aside and explained the situation. I finished 1st in the age group and they gave two age group awards and it ended all well.

I look forward to your surprise!

LOL.

I imagine if you were Maxwell Smart you could have used your Shoe Phone to call and get this situation under control!

Sorry 'bout the chip. I hope you take another shot at the 5k.
