      It’s been 4 days since ITU Cross Tri Worlds when I thought I was going to have one of the best race results of my career, but actually turned out to be quite the opposite. Initially, I was sad, disappointed, frustrated and upset but now that I’ve had a few days, I’m still sad, …

    I signed up for this race in the middle of last year. It is a lottery so you have to register early and hope you are chosen to compete.  Fortunately for me the 55K distance is not too hard to get into.  When I looked at my race season I didn’t really put all my …
