Yup, us guys! We're your new teammates, Andrea and Marc, and we are really looking forward to being a part of the Penguin crew. Thanks, Eric and Raina!!!

How it all gets done...

Elf. Similar to an oompa loompa in productivity, but a little less singing and dancing.

Hard Work

What's harder than that first race after you've decided you should race yourself into shape? Pinning shoulder numbers!

Here, I've kindly taken one for the team to demonstrate how not to do it:

I'll call this the wind-blown method.
Step 1. Stand facing the wind
Step 2. Hold shoulder numbers up on your shoulders
Step 3. Pin them in place*
Step 4. Get ready for the backwards attack with a big time flat.
*easier with an assistant, lovely or not

Luckily John has it pretty nailed.

George, too, is worth taking a lesson from.

Even Jesse, who just joined the flock after a few year hiatus from the race scene, managed to figure it out (though he might loose some coveted props for the shorts).

Next time, I'll go with the flow.

Thanks to Alix and Greg for the pictures.
