Tridaddy reads my posts some days and was quick to point out that our lake waves while larger than we've swam in weren't exactly gale size- and all of you ocean swimmers can stop laughing at my wave angst. I think tri training is challenging enough without exaggeration-so there's a lesson when writing for general public consumption-honesty. Not MSM honesty, but I can sleep at night honesty.
So that's clear.
I also wanted to make it very clear that the Jessi pose was 100% Trimama 2 idea- thanks for the inspiration Nancy!
Integrity counts. So here is my question. There was a race here on Sun and one of my teamates smoked the entire field, including pro men in the swim course. This was a USATF certified course with all the implication for points and nationals. Another teamate who swam the race suggested that a buoy was probably missed as it would be highly unusual for a master's woman to place that high in the swim. Missed buoy-DQ. Simple. But who is responsible to clarify the mistake? The athelete? Of course. What happens when they don't? Who should correct the error? The course judge? The sponsors? The team captain? A fellow Athelete? Me?
What would you do?
