Never in my life did I think that this would be possible, sure I fantasized about it, but not once have I honestly thought that I would win a trophy. I figured on mainly earning finisher's medals in my HMs, and possibly getting a trophy or something in my 40s+, but not a 1st place. This is an awesome feeling, and I think I've been bitten by a bug. Maybe this race was a fluke, a freak of nature and I might never see another, but it couldn't hurt to try. It couldn't hurt to push myself, could it?

I've won 30 or so 1st place A/G races and several 1st, 2nd or 3rd place over-alls in the past few years, and have never gotten a trophy. Lots of ribbons, a few medals, but no trophy. And no cash! That's what I'd really like to win.
That sure is pretty! Congratulations winner!
Running- the real sport. The others just play with their balls.
