snapshot: tuesday world championships

tucked in behind the two fast guys, ramping it up, sun dappling through the trees, watching for the move, biding my time: first guy eases up, second guy goes and i’m right there, i’m still sitting right where i wanna be, i see a road sign up ahead: that must be it, so i time my jump, i give it all, i go, and i get around the fast guy, get to the sign first (and then make sure i get to the second sign just beyond first, just in case that’s the right one), and i ease up, thinking cool, took a sprint from some young bucks half my age, take a deep breath and sit up…

… and the train goes right on by, heading for the real sprint line in a half-k.

at least i didn’t throw my arms up.
