Race Notes:

A little windy, but a good day for a beer mile! The 11th annual version of this event saw 22 competitors toe the line, all male for the first time in a while. Connell and Justin finished their last beer at the same time, and were in for a race. Connell, after taking last year off, was looking to improve on his silver from two years ago. Justin, a mere four seconds behind Connell in 2004, was looking to repeat as B.S.D. champion. However, the pressure got to Justin and he lost control in the turn, forcing a penalty lap. Jared Fletcher, spotting the boys 150m on the last lap, tried his best to sprint from behind for the win, but ended up just four seconds short. Other notable performances included Jon "Big" Bird showing up with a letter shaved in his chest, Kyle Hougen starting his 4th lap as slow as I've ever seen someone "run", and Ian Lumiere, humiliated by being in last place, deciding to run his last lap naked. Not a pretty sight!
