I have decided to NOT race Sunday in Chicago as my feet are still not where they should be. Could I finish...of course. The point...not really sure. It's like going to a test where you have only sorta studied. Dumb.
The bright spot is that I'll officiate on Sunday. This will be my last Category Four race and I will be (for the next year) a Category 3 USAT Official. I am working on a presentation that I can do for Chicago/Milwaukee and other regional triathlon clubs on the triathlon rules and how they effect racing.
In the mean time, know your rules and look for the USAT Official stamp on races and ASK FOR USAT officials. IT WILL CHANGE YOUR RACE EXPERIENCE.
