Today kicked off the Achilles Honor Games.

I ran in the foot race this morning.

I was happy to beat out Polites and Euryalus, but I came in tenth place.

Odysseus didn’t win the footrace this time around. He came in third. Maybe it’s because he ran wearing Achilles’ armor.

I hate to say it, but Odysseus looks kind of lame prancing around in a breastplate with a big ‘alpha’ on it. -Achilles himself could barely pull it off.

Anyway, some Pheraen guy won.

The chariot race and the discus throw were also held today.

There were two crashes in the race. The first collision was between Agamemnon and the Arcadian general, Agapenor. I felt pretty bad for Agapenor. –It was really his fault, and Agamemnon looked pretty pissed about it.

The second crash was nasty. This one actually involved Achilles’ old chariot driver, Automedon. Automedon was driving Achilles’ chariot, which also has a big ‘alpha’ on it. –It’s funny. I don’t recall anyone awarded him with it.

Anyway, Automedon tipped on a turn, and his own driver was tossed into the path of Eumelus’ chariot. -Eumelus unintentionally ran over the poor sap’s head.

Diomedes won the chariot race again.

When we were watching the discus competition, I asked Polites why he hadn’t entered this time around. He got third place last time. -I felt like a total ass when he held up the two fingers and thumb on his right hand.

Polites laughed about it, but I could tell he didn’t really think it was that funny.

Macar did compete in the discus event.

He actually took second place, which earned him a chicken. -The prizes for the Achilles Honor Games aren’t as great as they were in the Patroclus Honor Games.

In other news, I heard that Ajax is still alive.

However, I don’t expect to see him in the boxing competition tomorrow. -I guess that's good news for Epeius.

As you've heard so many a time by now, this is truly great. I just caught wind of your idea a week ago, and I could hardly stop reading until I'd caught up. I certainly hope you continue this up through to Circe. I can't wait to see how you describe the adventures on the journey home.
