fast chick convention?

Huh?! Did I miss something... where were the speedy ladies on Saturday? Well, thanks to their mysterious convention (location unknown - presumably NOT Myrtle Beach), I was able to place in the half marathon overall standings! 3rd Female - 54th Runner (out of 2,842). Needless to say, I'm shocked. Very excited with the outcome.

The entire weekend was a blast. Excellent weather (some wind - although, being on the coast... it was expected), great race, fast times, ocean views ;)... I'll write more in a race report.

Let me leave you with some race day pictures I found online:

Ashley, thanks for the comment on my blog. Jen is right - you are very humble. I've seen you compete in in the tri's last season and you are one fast girl and very motivational!

MB weather couldn't have been better, huh! Congrats on an awesome finish and time on that race! I can't wait to see how great you do this season!

Um, if there was a fast chick convention, how come you didn't get your invite? 'Cause you should have. Nice job on the half! Great weather and a good course, except the portion on Kings Highway (for me).

Looks like you aren't doing PI, so we'll catch you at Langley Pond. Train hard so you can smoke this boy on the run! ;-)
