Chariots of Fire

Special mention of Tomoo's dramatic finish at yesterday's Trivalley 10k.

On the last corner, I see him pumping his arms and legs, face crimson with exhaustion, kicking it up a notch for the grand finale. He crosses the line, and pauses. He has an expression of serenity, or a far-away look that suggests that he is thinking that this race was a metaphor for life itself. Resting his hands on his knees, Tomoo seems to shrug.

Then he puked for about 5 minutes.

that'll teach young Tomoo not to have a huge breakfast feast prior to the next Tri-Valley....which, by the way, I hear is going to be held at a secret location and will contain many steep climbs. Or maybe it won't.
