I was unbelievably privileged to receive a VIP pass to spectate this race. There were elite racers. Lots of spectators. Lots of beer. Lots of cowbells.
The athletes were interviewed and podiumed after the race. Elvis was there.
And what's that in the distance you ask?
Why, of course! It's a giant praying mantis with torch antennae...and the moon. What a night!
