You Have Me Confused...

That's what I thought when I got an e-mail from a friend of mine that said "Congrats on placing third at the CCC on Saturday."

Excuse me?

You _should_ know my name. We are friends. How could you mix me up with someone else?

So I called him on it and sure enough, he replied with the standings in my age group and my name showed up in the third position.

WOW.

How the hell did that happen? I nearly bonked at mile four!!!

But I got the luck of the draw and placed third in my age group, despite the fact that my age group was one of two slower age groups in the whole bunch.

But no matter. I placed and I'm pretty stoked about it.

My prize? It was essentially picking something out of a box. Mizuno shirt, hat, or shoe bag? Well a hat would be nice, but there weren't any left. A shirt? Well, it was cotton and no size smalls. I picked one up for Tim instead.

But a prize wasn't necessary. The prize was seeing my name next to number 3. :-)
