USDAA Western Regional Day One :: Alien Abduction
Team Gamblers. Where I was not abducted by aliens.
So there I was, in the middle of Banksy's amazing Steeplechase First round. Right about in the middle of the course, for approximately 84 minutes, I was transported via tractor beam to an alien ship. The abductors had large gray heads, skinny bodies, giant black eyes and suction cup finger tips. I was contained, questioned, probed and injected. According to space time, I was in the ship for 82 minutes so I guess the transporting bit took 1 minute each way.
When dropped back down into Steeplechase First round, I had no idea where I was. Ripple in the time space continuum. Blank slate. I stood there dazed for a few seconds, then picked an obstacle and went for it. We muddled through a bit and out. According to bystanders, my body never left the field although what happened was obvious. I lived to tell the tale.
Gooey ran the same Steeplechase round prior and neither of us suffered through the same fate. He had a great, fast clean run.
I E'ed in Team Standard, worst sin imaginable. Was a great run til I made an error. Oops.
But we won the Local Grand Prix. Yay!
Day 2 coming, more team, Biathalon, Relay. My big goal is to remember to eat some food, especially if we're running until 7pm again. Off we go!
