This year at Lotoja i mostly got beat by a lot of people. Here are some of the people that beat me:
and yes, even my BFF beat me, even though she started a good 30 minutes later than me.
She did take 2nd in her category and the official results show her as QOM with a time of 16:52, though at the awards ceremony they gave the QOM (and the free hotel room and ski passes for two) to someone else who was almost a whole minute slower at 17:50. Guess it pays to check the results and protest, even at a clustermuck race like Lotoja.
The race was topped off by an exciting night of firetrucks and smoldering logs, which the artist elucidates far better than i can. Suffice it to say we didn't get back to bed until after 2:00 am.
