Glad you had fun!
Congrats on your placements!

it looked like the tire was about to come off the rim.
The bead looked about 1/2 inch off the rim and I was worried the tire would blow.
Is this normal?

I don't recall ever seeing my bead affected like that when changing tire pressures.
IIRC, the max pressure on the stock Contis is 50psi.
EDIT:
Are you sure you weren't mistaking the "rim protector" for the bead?

BTW, did you try the shoe polish trick?
You can see where I mark mine in this pic....
