Argh! / Congrats to Jennette

When I picked up my packet for the Dragon Dash 5K the other day, I opened it up and noticed that they'd registered me as a male. Not a huge surprise, considering the fact that my name is androgynous. So, I called them to get it corrected. No answer. I emailed them, and never got a reply. The morning of the race, I went to the volunteer table, flashed my boobies, and said "See? I'm a girl!" Okay, I didn't flash my boobies. But I explained the situation and they wrote it down and said they'd get it corrected before the results would be posted.

So, imagine my dismay when I checked the results page today and they still had me down as a dude. The way it looks now, I'm the 30-year-old man who finished third-to-last. Not so great. However, if you take my official finish time of 28:52 and plug it into the "females ages 30-39" category, I came in FOURTH!!!! This is freaking awesome, but no one will ever know because those stupid idiots think I have a damned Y-chromosome. I'm so pissed. I wrote them another email. Grrrr.

on a brighter note...

Most of you who read this blog also read Half of Me. Jennette ran her half-marathon yesterday and did an awesome job. You should go to her blog, read all about it, then tell her how awesome she is. I'm about to, myself! Go Jennette!
