You dropped your gift card in the building, a woman turned it in, Paul and I were still standing by the awards table so we told the volunteer it was yours and she wrote your name on it.

I thought you were already headed to California but I had my suspicions that you were racing given the haircut the other day. I have no doubt it was the key to your success today.

Good race.

Nice race Rob - even if you are not as fast as you once were - that's still a really good time - especially for an old guy :).

As a coincidence Tracy is headed to LA for the week on Sunday with her niece. Looks like really warm temps. Enjoy!

Thanks Bret. We're in Westwood near UCLA if Tracy's in the neighborhood.
