"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'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!

You'll always have won 2nd place in our eyes...

Jodi said...

That sucks!

Did you get any hardware at least?



Flatman said...

No...I can't take the suspense!!!!!

Why are all blog-people so sneaky? :)

Michele said...

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.

Hey what happen to IMKY '08. I need some company out there.

You're like the Invisible Girl in the Fantastic Four :-)

Cliff said...

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!

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.
