The Maine Mayhem!
Ok, it's now obvious that a proper race report just isn't going to happen so it's abridged report time. When the bike portion of the race rolled around, I took an assessment of the folks at the line and decided that my teammate Anders, Steve and a couple of college age looking kids (see how old I am now? college KIDS???) were my most likely competition so the best strategy was to try to get out to an early lead and hold onto it. I THOUGHT I had only a 14 second deficit to Anders and roughly 2:00 to Steve so this shouldn't be too bad. Maybe, with luck on my side, I'll pull off the overall.

my buddy Tim did his first ever race. He won his age
category but lost in the number attachment category.
Steve waiting for the final results.
I offered to settle it with an arm wrestling competition.
(glad he didn't take me up on it)
Anders being all stoic. He'd look even
more stoic in a nice new jacket...
