I remember talking to Mark and Andy about it. They said he's always cranky in the morning (I think it runs in his family, actually), and they definitely tried to chase him down.

Perhaps they realized WAY before I did that he wasn't actually ahead of us as we thought.

Clearly I need to learn to look around a little more, and engage more of my brain than the tiny part that tells my legs to go.

Still, I know for a fact that Mark and Andy were cheating a little going over the bridge (going outside the cones), and they got way ahead of us while they looked for Dave. I even talked to Mark about it during "lunch" in P-town.

I guess you guys regrouped after the bridge, and I -- cluelessly -- just kept looking for everybody.

Oh well. It was still a great weekend!

How many times did you spot me in the crowds this weekend while I was looking for you and the rest of the guys? I can think of at least three times that happened. Am I blind, or am I just easier to see than you are?
