Matt: 1, Sean: 0

The quick and dirty: Matt kicked my butt yesterday at the Orcas Island 50 km!

Yes, I wanted to kick his butt, however, Matt had a great run. It was his first ultra in a year and a half, and so I am super, duper, pooper, stoked for him to have run well.

Matt: 4:47
Me: 5:10

23 minutes is a lot to give up in a 50 km. No excuses. Matt won. I lost. I have a bit of a hole to dig out of on May 29th.

I'm sporting the loser's vest at the post-race party (yes, that's a nuuntini in the cup!).

Congratulations, buddy. Enjoy your few months of glory.

My three-year-old niece would LOVE that vest.

Oooh, save that pretty vest for your niece. She's also three and would love it, too. Although, you look really pretty in pink. It brings out the blue in your eyes.

I think you might be in trouble, as Matt claims he is a pro when it comes to technical vertical:) better train hard!

You look good in that vest. And way to kick Matt's butt into gear - that was your plan all along, right?
