    First Pro Race

    I learned a lot.

    Ate a big slice of humble pie.

    DFL (except the guys who dropped out).

    That is all.

    Well, you didn't drop, so you're better than them.

    Don't worry about it. Keep racing and it will all come together.

    I find that I place much higher relatively when I add in guys who dropped out, guys that signed up and didn't start, the juniors, the 65+ women, guys that could have signed up but didn't, well, you get the idea....

    Lanterne Rouge!

    This title can't EVER apply to most of us because we "couldn't hang on his wheel for 30 seconds!"

    congrats on finishing!

    edit: just saw the "pro tri-geek" sig. Whatever, it kinda still applies!
    gravity: it's not just a good idea, it's the law.
