Bike Race

Ben came in third in a mountain-bike race yesterday. It was his first bike race in over a year, and his first mountain-bike race in over four years. When he told me it was a hard race, I asked, “Did you manage to finish, at least?” I didn’t expect him to be standing on the podium, getting a medal. I was impressed. A “hard race,” in Ben-speak, just means he didn’t come in first.
