DC IS THE Dead City

thanks Paul!

costumes were optional...

I dressed up as a Catholic School Girl
why? because Catholic School Girls Rule!

above... is what others saw
below... is what I thought I looked like


Bruce and John Dinn

my alleycat race strategy tends to be the same
look at the crowd
take a measure of who is fast
think about who is wise to the layout of the city
whose engine can I match up with

Bruce is always an obvious contender 
on this day... he was not only top seasoned veteran
but the racer with longest list of top Alleycat finishes
it was obvious that Bruce would be the wheels that I would try to chase

there was a LeMann's style start
I ran to my bike
then without looking at my manifest 
I left out of the park chasing Bruce

it was fun riding\racing with Bruce
he accepted my bid for allegiance 

we rode together as a pair for most of the race
until I flatted
then Bruce left out but not without offering up meeting at the check point after next
he went to 1010 Mass. to get the answer to a question
while I repaired my flat and then left off with the hope to catch him at the next check point

did not catch Bruce until after he had finished
at the final Check Point I was given the answer of "Baby" and a piece of candy
without "baby" and that piece of candy I would not have had a complete manifest
that would have bumped me back in line

Bruce finished 4th
I queued up at 5th

good times... super cool good times!
