    The real winner on the day was that dude from Tortola who finished 6th. I heard he got a really short haircut a couple of days before the race just to make himself more aerodynamic and to sweat less. The BVI is lucky to have dedicated athletes of his caliber participating. If he runs in the half marathon then I'm going to ask him for a selfie.
