Here is the email he sent us letting us know that his bibs had been destroyed: “The finish line was in sight. Just ahead, through the red mist of pain, I could make out the flecks of foam on Grunter’s screaming, frenzied face. I was reeling in that prideful upstart Bulgarian, you know, the one we’ve hated ever since that episode with the podium girls and the beet
