A cool sort of new site...

And that cool site is Is it new? I don't know - it's new to me. You enter in your name and it searches the web for race results and brings them all together for you. If you know of some results out there that it doesn't have, you can "lead" it to them. Pretty cool. Of course, if you've been running forever, like say if you're an old man like me, then it obviously has trouble finding the really old ones. Hey, we didn't have no stinkin' internets back then. We were happy with color TV! So Athlinks has found results for me back to 1996, which isn't too bad, and it's found 26 results total. It seems to be a little better finding tri results than running results for some reason...maybe the tri directors just get their results up more often and/or leave them there longer. I don't know. Anyhoo, try it out, I think you'll like it.

Oh, it also automatically finds "friends" and "enemies" for you...people that show up in a lot of the same results that you do. And it gives you a win-loss record against them - I'm 0-7 against Keefer Whan. Damn you, Keefer! Good thing I left him back up in the Skagit Valley.

Let's race.
