Quick Little Update Thingie

And here's the morning's news:
  • I've been helping our team put on Star Crossed, without a doubt the highest profile race in Washington state. It's been a really good experience for me; as someone who usually gets to just hop out of the car, throw on a kit, and start racing, rarely pausing to think about how that start/finish line got there, who built the podium or the announcers' stand, or where all those miles of barricade came from, it's been really good for me to see how much damn work it takes to put on a race! Terry Buchanan is the promoter of Star Crossed, and he and I have been staging things for weeks now. The last three days have been full-on grueling, and I'm just about to head back to the venue to finish the tear down, but I'm happy to say that things went off without a hitch!
  • I FOUND MY CAMERA CHARGER! As you may have noticed, I haven't posted any pictures in a while. Unfortunately, in the pre/during/post burning man confusion, I lost track of my camera charger. I found it last night, and the battery is charging as we speak. All is right with the world, expect photos soon.
  • Yes, I raced Star Crossed in a speedo. Yes, many pictures were taken. Guilty as charged your honor. I wouldn't be surprised if they start surfacing soon. (If you know of any, post them on my comments).
  • Update: here are some sweet ones:
