Usually I would just edit my ride story post once the results get posted, mostly because I finish towards the back and it wouldn't warrant a whole new post.
But not this time!
Results are hot off the press and show that I actually took 5th place missing 4th by one second (although that is misleading since the 4th place person was actually 2:45 slow where as we were 2:46 too fast which really separated us by over 5 minutes. Crazy when you think of it like that coming from an endurance background)
Optimum time was 1:47 and we came across the finish in 1:44:14 which means that for once I went too fast :)
I'm doing a happy dance in my chair. Good thing I work for myself or my obsessive checking of the results could have gotten me in trouble.
They should be mailing out a ribbon which I will proudly place on Gem's gate or trailer or something since we don't have a stall to use to brag. I'm excited!!
On another exciting note:
DUSTY AND I ARE THE NATIONAL EQUATHON CHAMPIONS!!!
Yeah, that totally deserves full caps lock :)
I think I ended up in 3rd in the overall individual standings which is also pretty awesome since that combines men and women. It's been a good day to look online.
I have no clue if I get any swag or just bragging rights from the Ride and Tie Association. I guess I will find out sooner or later.
Go TEAM GEMMIECAKES!!
