To warm up for the race I jogged two miles, which indeed did warm me up enough to take off my gloves for the race itself. The race, while advertised to be chip timed, was really gun timed because there was only a finish line map catching the finishing time. I wonder if the Velcro ankle chips are only, always finishing line timed? The last two races I ran had the Velcro ankle bracelets and were timed the same. Do you know? What is your experience with the timing chips?

|Long Sleeve T-Shirt, Bib and my 2010 1st Place Age Group Medal|
Since I won my age group, I wanted to wait to get my medal. After all, it's all about the bling. It actually said 2010 and not just a generic achilles foot medal. It was really cold by this time, and the sweat from the race made it even colder. The award ceremony was dragged out by doing raffle tickets, celebrating the new year with ice cold Martinelli's and then finally announving my age group. Hurray! Off to home, climb into bed and try for the next few hours to get warm.
Happy New Year!
