NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL A MEDAL!
This is from last weekend's indoor tri. Jan says its bigger than her Boston Marathon medal!
Jan took 2nd, I took 3rd in the age group. So I'm happy enough with that. I suppose I should not "concede" (as taken from Fe-Lady's post that she did not concede) to Jan, and maybe I do, without realizing it until later. We were very close. I'm not sure I would have beaten her, but being close puts it within the realm of possibility, and always opens up that can of worms "what if"--what if I had biked a little harder; what if I had not fallen apart on the run; what if?
I figure I can bide my time until next year, when I will be in a different age group from her. But then again, I hope to not take the attitude that because we won't be competing against each other in the age group that I should concede to her then either. One day, I will catch her off guard.
