…Yvonne Kingon. Preliminary results showed Yvonne in 4th Place in her age group at last week’s Westchester Triathlon. Interestingly, the woman who was credited with finishing 3rd had no splits shown in the results. And today she was absent from the Brightroom photos. After annoying the crap out of the Head Referee and Race Director for the last week, I am happy to announce that Yvonne is now officially the 3rd Place finisher in the 40-44 AG. Last week we uncover the conspiracy against Chris Solarz, and now this. I’m off to study the Magruder films.
Another day of salacious blog postings, and another day of heavy traffic. Today we keep the streak going with Drew Koncz showing a little skin as he nears the finish of his first Half Iron race. Not too shabby for a guy who could barely swim last year.
Tomorrow we’ll have photos of Kim Kardashian’s triathlon debut. In the meantime, this photo reminds me of a great article at Bicycle Source.

Based on the heavy traffic to this site yesterday after a fleeting mention of the female anatomy, it seems clear that if we want attention for our humble blog, that provocative language is a more effective means of attracting it than my rambling about triathlon and Seinfeld trivia. In that spirit, I am reminded of our friend Billy Simmons’ long dormant, but still amusing site, www.bikepimp.net. Where else can you see gems like "lighter than a crackhead on a hunger strike" in a review of a bike?

I’ve been troubled to see that Killer’s blog is getting nearly as many hits as mine. As such, I figured that I needed some keywords that would attract more attention. Yes – this is a real ad placed on craigslist. No – not by me. I particularly like the assurance that it’s tastul (sic).
Topless Female Cyclist wanted for Music Video:
-must be between 18 & 25
-Natural Breasts a PLUS not a must
-must have a Pretty Face
MUST BE ABLE TO RIDE A BICYCLE.. also must be comfortable and confident while topless!
THIS IS AN EXTREMELY TASTFUL SCENE! NOT SLEAZY! NOT PORN!

Perhaps it won’t have quite the same historic impact as "Dewey Defeats Truman", but it seems that the proclamation that "Gunderson Beats Solarz" was also premature. It seems that due to an accidental chip switch with his friend in the first wave, Mr. Gunderson was credited with a time that was two minutes too fast. Once contacted and informed that he had "won", he came clean. So….our Chris Solarz is both the 2007 Run the Rock Champion and the new course record holder. Congratulations Chris.

Here’s a quick rundown of the fine showings this past weekend:

On Saturday, City Coach newbie Chris Solarz broke the previous course record at Run the Rock. (Depending on the pending inquiry, he either placed 1st or 2nd overall.) Sunday he did a recovery run of 26.2 miles. That’s right – he ran the Yonkers Marathon the day after the climb. Thankfully, he’s taking it easy this week, and doesn’t have another marathon scheduled until this weekend. (I kid you not.)
At Run the Rock today, Killer won the women’s race by over a minute. Chris Solarz was 2nd, in a time that beat the previous course record. Plus we saw lots of friends – old and new. Click here for photos. Congratulations to Emily and Chris.
